Baked Sriracha Ranch Asparagus Fries ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #crispy #asparagus #appetizer #recipe

Asparagus spears coated in cool & spicy sriracha ranch and crispy crunchy garlicky (and coincidentally gluten free!) crumbs and then oven-baked to crispy tender perfection, with extra Sriracha Ranch Dressing for dipping. I think I may have just stumbled upon asparagus nirvana. Crispy oven-baked things call to me. The crunch is what I crave. This morning when yoga […]

Long Live the Modern Taco Salad!

My favorite salad of all time … shredded slow-cooked bourbon chipotle pork, crispy Romaine lettuce, shredded  Mexican cheese, chopped sweet peppers and avocado, black beans, corn and Nacho cheese Doritos with cashew cilantro salsa and Sriracha Ranch dressing. (salsa and dressing not pictured) This recipe is a takeoff copycat recipe from a favorite restaurant that […]

Vietnamese Pork Banh Mi Sandwiches ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Asian #Pork #Sandwich #recipe

Highly adapted from The Food Network I’ve been seeing Pork Banh Mi sandwiches all over the foodisphere lately … and wondering just what is so wonderful about these sandwiches? So when I found myself with a big ol’ hunk of pork and a big event coming up that I was doing the food for, I […]

This sushi roll was inspired by one of my favorite bagel toppings … smoked salmon and cream cheese. Sesame roasted asparagus and matchstick carrots on top of that add a nice flavor and crunch, a bit of green onion provides a little bite and then, a little bit of sriracha for that tingle on the tongue that is so […]

Japanese Yum Yum Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spicy #creamy #steakhouse #sauce #recipe

Adapted just slightly from Melissa’s Southern Style Kitchen My friend describes this sauce as “the nectar of the gods” … and I have to agree, it is really the awesomesauce of sauces. Spicy, creamy, garlicky, wonderful … if you have not yet experienced this sauce in your life, you really need to get on it! […]


Spring Crab & Asparagus Dip

Spring Crab & Asparagus Dip ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #crab #asparagus #dip #recipe

I took a break from dips … I don’t know how it happened, or why. Perhaps it was that marathon health kick I went on when I was trying to get skinny. (It worked, by the way! I’m officially back to my ideal weight.) But lately I’ve had the munchies and I looked over my […]


Spicy Asian Sriracha Green Beans

Spicy Asian Sriracha Green Beans ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fiery #healthy #sidedish #recipe

Adapted from To Simply Inspire Do you ever get bored with vegetables? I have been eating lots and lots and lots of veggies lately (did I mention I’m on a serious new health kick?), and frankly, I was getting a little bored and wanting more flavor, more fire, more excitement in my vegetables. Then I ran across […]


Asian Sriracha Chicken Nachos

Asian Sriracha Chicken Nachos ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sriracha #chicken #nachos #recipe

I had this idea rolling around in my head of some Asian style nachos. I thought it would be SO awesome … and I knew just how I wanted to do them. Flour tortilla chips, shredded teriyaki chicken, a bit of chopped celery and/or water chestnuts (for extra crunch), matchstick carrots (for both color and crunch) and a […]


Sriracha Parmesan Heirloom Tomato Soup

Sriracha Parmesan Heirloom Tomato Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #tomato #soup #recipe

It’s been beautifully sunny this month, but today it’s raining outside and chilly … total soup weather.  I am wishing I had saved some of this vibrant tomato soup I made when I had a huge box of tomatoes from my mom’s garden. The heirloom tomatoes were sooo ripe, I needed to find a good use […]


Homemade Hoisin Sauce

Homemade Hoisin Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #Asian #Hoisin #sauce #recipe

Hoisin sauce is a thick, pungent sauce commonly used in Chinese cuisine as a glaze for meat, an addition to stir fries, or as dipping sauce. It is darkly coloured in appearance and both sweet and salty in taste. If you find yourself needing Hoisin sauce for a recipe, but have none on hand, this […]


Sriracha Ranch Yogurt Dressing

Sriracha Ranch Yogurt Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #light #healthy #spicy #creamy #salad #dressing #dip

I adore a good salad, especially a salad that has lots of flavor. One day when I was out to dinner with my kids, I spotted a “modern taco salad” on the menu, made with shredded pork and served with Sriracha Ranch dressing. I just HAD to taste that Sriracha Ranch … it was so good, […]


Pot Roast Avocado Salad

Pot Roast Avocado Salad ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cookonceeattwice #salad #recipe

with blue cheese crumbles and a spicy low-cal Sriracha Ranch dressing I’m a huge fan of cooking once, and eating new, creative meals not just once, but two or three times based on that first dish. It just makes cooking your follow-on meals so much easier! And you don’t have to deal with that awful […]


Honey Sriracha Sesame Crusted Fish

Honey Sriracha Sesame Crusted Fish ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #fish #recipe

After I made the Honey Sriracha Cashews, well, I had a load of nicely toasted sesame seeds that didn’t stick to the cashews like I hoped they would and I just couldn’t toss them, thinking that a Honey Sriracha Sesame coated chicken or fish would be marvelous! And then my dad came along and gave me […]


Honey Sriracha Sesame Cashews

Honey Sriracha Sesame Cashews ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spiced #nut #recipe

Adapted slightly from Vitamin Sunshine It’s New Year’s Day. Wow. Another year has flown by us … another year of new beginnings ahead of us. Changes are afoot in my life. Not large, sweeping changes, just small ones, in the grand scheme of things, but as I get older, changes like a reorganization at work and […]


Sriracha Brussels Sprout Poppers

Sriracha Brussels Sprouts Poppers ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #hot #appetizer #recipe

Crispy little baked poppers with the oh-so-addicting heat and flavor from Sriracha, a crunchy topping and healthy roasted brussels sprouts as a “base”, topped with a bit more Sriracha, if you are so inclined. My sister gave me some fresh brussels sprouts and I was SO excited because I’ve never had brussels sprouts all to myself […]


Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Soup

Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #redpepper #soup #recipe

Roasted red peppers and cream cheese with a bit of Sriracha in a warm, comforting, creamy soup. Soooo this is the next most requested recipe on my list of gotta-get-posted recipes for the blog. It is actually a recipe I made some time ago, back in October. I made it, I tried it … I liked it, […]


Honey Sriracha Pumpkin Seeds

Honey Sriracha Roasted Pumpkin Seeds ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #spicy #sweet #roasted #pumpkin #seeds #recipe

The combination of honey with Sriracha is a magical thing. It takes that oh-so-amazing garlicky hot sauce to a whole new level. I’m trying to recall exactly when I discovered this, what was it I made with honey and Sriracha before? … but my memory is failing me. Anyway, after I roasted 2 little pumpkins, one for […]


Easy Honey Teriyaki Chicken

Easy Honey Teriyaki Chicken ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quick #teriyaki #chicken #recipe

A super simple chicken recipe you can have on the table in 20 minutes. It is seriously that fast to make. While the rice cooks, you can have the chicken DONE. Toss in some veggies and you have a complete meal. If you add lots of vegetables, you might need to make more sauce. Fortunately, […]

with Spicy Maple Dijon Dipping Sauce After months of sub-zero temps and biting wind chills, the temperature FINALLY warmed up to 60 last weekend.

Healthy Pumpkin Ginger Soup with Sriracha

Healthy Pumpkin Ginger Soup with Sriracha ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

Creamy, smooth, lightly sweet (but not TOO sweet) pumpkin soup with a bit of a kick … what more could you want in a soup? For me, I want it to be healthy too. I know, I know, it’s not “pumpkin season” … but who says we have to have a “season” for pumpkin? It’s […]


Sriracha Hummus

Sriracha Hummus ~ Recipe & a bit of the history of hummus from Sumptuous Spoonfuls

The classic hummus kicked up a notch with the addition of Sriracha, a hot sauce that adds both flavor and a bit of heat to this delicious, healthy Mediterranean dip. My friend at work saw me eating this and said to me, “Why don’t they just call it bean dip?” … my answer to her […]
