Spicy Dipping Sauce

Prep: 5 minutes Chill: 1-2 hours

Serves:Makes 1/2 cup

This is another one of those richer sauces that make anything taste great. We especially like this with asparagus or artichokes. This one starts with Tofu Mayonnaise (see hints below). I usually have a batch of the mayonnaise in my refrigerator so this goes together rather quickly. Make this ahead of time so the flavors have time to blend well. To make this less spicy, use the lesser amount of the hot sauce.


  • 1/2 cup tofu mayonnaise
  • 1-2 tsp Sriracha hot sauce
  • 2 1/2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • dash salt


Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. Refrigerate before using for best flavor.

Hint: Tofu Mayonnaise is made with a package of soft silken tofu, 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice, 1 teaspoon sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard, 1/8 teaspoon white pepper. Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Make this ahead of time for best results.
