Sriracha Organic Hope Hummus + Vegan Sriracha Shells 'n Cheese RecipeIt is Sriracha Hummus! Hope Foods makes a huge line of hummus flavors, which range from Kale Pesto to the Sriracha shown at right. And unlike many other brands, Hope Hummus is completely dairy-free, soy-free, and vegan. Most hummus producers use cheap soybean oil, but they blend in high-quality organic extra-virgin olive oil instead. Each variety of Hope Hummus is also certified organic, non-GMO verified, certified gluten-free, and certified kosher pareve.

As I’ve learned over the past few years, hummus is a healthy, high-protein helper for making creamy dairy-free sauces. This Sriracha Shells ‘n Cheese recipe involves blending hummus with cashews and extra-virgin olive oil for a very luxurious, rich pasta sauce. And don’t be afraid of the nutritional yeast! It’s a “cheesy” all-natural seasoning that melds deliciously.

    • They aren’t soaked in this recipe. If you’re worried that your blender or food processor can’t tackle them, then you can pre-grind the cashews in a spice grinder before adding them.

  4. And when will you be making this dish for me? How did I miss the taste testing. Folks, the benefit of living in the same town as Alisa is the ability to beg for samples!
