Spicy Sriracha White Bean Dip & Signs of Spring!

Homemade spicy sriracha, fresh chilies sauces and pretty much anything with dip recipes has been on our eating repertoire as  of late. Since making our last batch of spicy garlic knots, cravings for more heat keeps our stomachs rumbling for daily spice. Just the other day, we were making our latest batch of homemade kim chi and went triple the spicy level! Fingers crossed we don’t regret adding all that heat.

In a few weeks, we’ll be hosting a fun event at our studio with KitchenAid  and menu planning for this luncheon is always creative and inspiring. Spring is nearing so plenty of fresh vegetables, fresh citrus and homemade baked goods will fill the studio. Also on the menu are homemade crackers with parmesan, flax seed and possibly fresh rosemary? Not sure yet, but when we finally figure it out, we’ll be sharing it with you all.

To accompany the homemade crackers we wanted to simple, yet flavorful dip recipe and fresh white bean dip seems to satisfy any hungry crowd. Since we still have spicy on the mind, it seems to appropriate to add a bit of fresh heat to this earthy and white bean dip.

The wonderful part of this dip is that is truly is so simple and fresh, yet so flavorful with Asian inspired flavors and heat. Touches of sesame oil, fresh live, zesty garlic and your choice of chili sauce gives this creamy dip so many layers of flavor.

Our spring plum blossoms 

On the gardening front, we’re finally catching up to some much needed digging. Over the last few weeks, we’ve been working slowly on adding 4 new citrus trees to our collection. Oro blanco, a second bearss lime, meyer lemon and kishu mandarin have made home in their new planters. We’re super excited about all the new sprigs of growth on these baby citrus because that’s the first sign of Spring.

Even our flowering plums were showered with blossoms last week and their endless explosion of pink petals from branch to branch!

Hope your weather is warming up slowly for all our friends outside of Southern California!

Here’s a collection of our Hot Sauce and Sriracha Recipes, including our version of homemade sriracha hot sauce.

Spicy Asian White Bean Dip

Yield: 3-4

This bean dip recipe is probably one of the easiest we've made and one of the crowd favorites. It's quite healthy and rather than dip with chips, we'll use raw vegetables.

Ingredients:

  • 1 15oz can of white beans (rinsed)  , I prefer the creamy cannellini beans
  • 1 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce ( or to taste)
  • 2 Tablespoons sriracha hot sauce or any spicy chili sauce, or one fresh thai chili
  • 1 large clove of garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 cup of water (addition water needed if you need to make the dip smoother)
  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice
  • crackers or fried crispy bread

Directions:

1. In blender, combine all ingredients. Blend until smooth.
2. Serve with your favorite crackers or toasted, fried bread.

    Best dip ever! I added arugula for some freshness, it came out amazing. Thank you for a great recipe!

  2. Lori @ Foxes Love Lemons

    Hi Todd & Diane! Just wanted to let you know that I featured this recipe (with full credit and a link-back) in a dip recipe roundup today on Foxes Love Lemons. Have a great day!

  3. kitchencove.net

    Look very delicious 😀

  4. Lisa

    I just made this and it is very good! Mine was REALLY spicy! I happened to have an extra can of cannellini beans so I just doubled the recipe. My only recommendation would be to add the Sriracha sauce last and only add half. You can always add more:) This dip is a nice change of pace from my usual hummus!

  5. Kate

    Mine came out very saucy and soupy, since I added the water before blending; I should have waited until after to make sure it needed it. It was still good as a sauce – I ate it poured over rice and broccoli. I also garnished with cilantro as others suggested, and it brightened it quite nicely. Next time I would start out with less sesame oil and add to taste; I found 1 tsp to be a bit overwhelming. I’m definitely going to try making it again with a couple tweaks. Thanks for the recipe.

  6. Patty

    Just made this as a quick snack before dinner. My daughter and husband loved it and love that spicy flavor. Did the lemon verses lime because didn’t have the lime and I wil try the lime next time. This will be a staple snack in our household

  7. Allison

    We made this for our superbowl party! We did feel like it needed something fresh or bright in there, so we added about a quarter cup of cilantro. Perfect! We have no leftovers! :)

  8. Herbivore Triathlete

    Yep, this will be made for the Christmas party this evening. I’ve got all the ingredients in my cupboards already, perfect, thanks!

  9. T

    Saw this on Pinterest. Was amazed I had all the ingredients. Made it and it’s amazingly delicious! Perfect for snacking or a party. Thanks!

  10. megan

    I made it tonight…. honestly my picture of it does not do it justice!

  11. Sara

    This dip is perfect for our family! I made it recently and am already preparing to make it again. Thanks for a quick, easy, healthy and tasty recipe!

  12. Iris

    Made this last week. Very original idea for bean dip–nice flavors. Next time I’ll be a little more bold with the sriracha. I’m usually a wimp when it comes to spicy food but I surprisingly wanted more heat!

  13. Nicole, RD

    What a healthy snack…I can’t wait to try it!

  14. Ambika

    Yum!! We love sriracha and I am sure it perfectly compliments the creamy white beans! Love this recipe, will make it really soon. Thanks for sharing :)

  15. Valentina

    the dip looks amazing! and stone fruit flowers are one of the most beautiful things ever! lovely all around!

  16. The Wimpy Vegetarian

    Well, rats. I just used up the last of my white beans last night, and now I’m seeing your wonderful dip. Looks like I need to get more beans – this looks really, really wonderful! And I’m always on the hunt for a good use of sriracha! And I love, love, love the photos.

  17. Jean

    Has anyone tried this without the garlic? A friend cannot have garlic but it looks like the rest of the recipe might fit into his vegan diet. And I love surprising him with something he can eat at our office parties.

  18. Kristie V.

    I just whipped up a batch of this dip and it’s fantastic! I may never eat store-bought hummus again!
    It’s perfect…someone please stop me before I eat the whole bowl…

  19. Steph

    I made this dip last night. It was good but I found the whole clove of raw garlic to be a bit much. Maybe the particular clove I used was too big…but next time, I’m going to sub a little bit of garlic powder instead. Thanks for the inspiration!

  20. Amy

    I am definitely making this dip for our day of maple sap boiling (an outdoor activity!) and our sign of spring is taps in the maple trees!

  21. Jen @ Pretty Plate

    What a fantastic idea. I must try this asap.

    : ))

    I made this today and it is excellent. I also normally make some flavor of hummus for our snaking pleasure but now have this!

  23. Cheese with Noodles

    Normally we are hummus folks, but this looks SO good! I will need to try it very soon. I think I actually have the ingredients, too!

  24. Izabela

    Made the dip earlier tonight! It’s yummy! I added cilantro and extra garlic and garlic chili sause also by sirarcha but left out the sesame oil.

  25. vegobsessionchick

  30. Lori @ Lemons and Lavender

    Spicy bean dip on toasts? It’s a complete meal! And it looks fabulous.

    I am so smitten with the Oro Blanco grapefruits and kishu mandarins. I just can’t get enough of them!

    See you soon :)

  31. Karen T.

    Just made the dip–flavor is fabulous. Mine came out quite a bit “oranger” due to the two tablespoons sriracha and thinner as I used the entire 1/4 cup water. I reduced the amount of olive oil to cut back on fat and it didn’t affect the flavor. Divine! Thanks for another great recipe!

  32. Garden Fresh Salsa via Facebook

    We love spicy foods too!! Looks amazing!

  33. Shirley Woolward via Facebook

  35. Melissa Aronson Bihl via Facebook

  37. Zita Nagy via Facebook

    This is very yummie!

  38. joey

    This sounds fantastic! Love love love sriracha!!

  39. Rebecca Jean

    Ohh….how did I miss that this is just the sauce I had in my potatoes and eggs?? Just diced up potatoes, sauteed in butter till tender and dark brown on the edges. Beat the eggs with a squirt of sauce, and cook over the poatoes. I often add some cheese on top. So yummy and filling!

  40. Rebecca Jean

    I just found this through pinterest and it looks so very yummy. A bit like I make my hummus, with a bit of this and a bit of that. I think, and that came from my white beans on toast redo come to think of it. Thanks for sharing yummy, healthy food!

  41. Sheila

    I have gotten to prefer the white beans for dips recently. And I love the taste of sesame oil AND siracha. Grocery shopping today. Yea!!!!

  42. The Teacher Cooks

    Love spicy and easy! This recipe meets both of those requirements and yes I want the cracker recipe, too.

  43. Dax Phillips

    That dip looks, and sounds really great. Love the combination of flavors. Now if only spring were to arrive a bit sooner in Wisconsin…

  44. Kelley

    Holy sriracha this looks good! Can’t wait to try it, thanks for the great recipe!

  45. Helene

    I have a bottle of sriracha hot sauce but never think of using it. Should start with this dip :) I wish we had flowers here but we still have snow on the ground. Can’t wait for Spring. Have a good one!

  46. Chef Connie

    Yay for spring. We have not seen it yet up here in the Colorado mountains. I am bookmarking this bean dip recipe. Anything with Sriracha is good with me.

  47. Erin

    I love new takes on bean dips and I also happen to love sriracha! What a great combination (and lovely shots of spring!)

  48. Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar

    This sounds absolutely wonderful! And your plum blossoms are so beautiful!!

  49. Heather {the lovely cupboard}

    oh my…adding this to my “TO COOK” list.

    Sriracha is quite the spicy friend. we use it in so many dishes. never thought to add it to a dip.

  50. Maureen

    this dip looks fantastic! I want some now.

  51. Snippets of Thyme

    Hands down, I think this one of your most perfect photos. Honestly, I feel as if my finger just made that swirl right in the dip. It’s just lovely.

  52. Susan in the Boonies

    Printed this one out! Yum!

    Looking forward to meeting you at Blissdom!

  53. Deanna

    That dip sounds fabulous. I’ve been craving spicy food lately, and I keep meaning to make another batch of your sriracha, but I keep getting distracted, most by my blooming nectaplum. I was outside begging all the flowers to not fall off when the winds picked up last week.

  54. Joy

    this looks absolutely divine. here in MA spring feels a tad too far away for my liking but i hope to god no sudden april snowstorms PLEASE.

  55. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga

    I love the sound of this dip! I am such a fan of dips and condiments….I like a little food with my big bowl of dip, if you know what I mean. Dip is it’s own food group :)

    It was warmer here in San Diego for a few days but the past few, not so much. Colder and windier and less spring like…but it’s San Diego, not exactly Alaska.

  56. Michelle

    oh I want the cracker recipe! sounds great.
