Instant Pot Sriracha Hummus

Hummus is one of my favorite snacks ever. A few years ago, Brady and I found a Sriracha Hummus at Whole Foods. We obsessively bought it for about a year and then it vanished, never to be found again. Frustrated, I started tinkering, like I do, and came up with a kick butt Sriracha Hummus!

I hope you enjoy this hummus as much as our family does! It has a very mild spice and is flavorful without being too full of heat. It’s also kid and Grandma approved!

I started making all of my legumes in my Instant Pot Pressure Cooker a few years ago. Not only does it save me a bundle but it also reduces waste. I make all of my chickpeas in my Instant Pot and I store what I don’t use immediately inside of my freezer. Whenever I need a cup, I just grab a cup out of the freezer, and that’s that!

To make chickpeas inside of your Instant Pot, begin by placing 1 pound of chickpeas inside a large bowl. Fill the bowl with water and let the chickpeas soak for 8 hours or overnight. Rinse and drain the chickpeas before adding them to your Instant Pot Pressure Cooker. Barely cover the chickpeas with water, it’s okay if a pea or two is peaking out above the water line. Close and lock the lid, making sure the vent valve is in the sealing position.

Using the display panel select the manual/pressure cook function and use the +/- buttons until the pot says 25 minutes. When the cooker beeps to let you know it’s finished let it naturally release the pressure, about 30 minutes. When straining the chickpeas, keep the goopy liquid that remains. The liquid is called aquafaba and it is an excellent egg replacer! Rinse you chickpeas and use in any recipe that calls for cooked or canned chickpeas!

    OMG – this is delicious!!!! One question – I used organic canned chickpeas – are you supposed to rinse and drain? The recipe doesn’t say so the first batch i drained and rinsed and there was not enough liquid and my blender wouldn’t blend. I made another batch using half the liquid from the can and it was much better. Then I mixed both batches together and it’s perfect. And, the flavor?? I could eat the entire two batches with a spoon! Thank you for such amazing recipes. I never comment on things, but this receipe deserved a comment!

    1. The same exact thing happened to me – I just bought a Vitamix and it would not blend the mixture. I had to add broth to get it to go. I don’t think there is enough liquid in this recipe. BUT the end result was amazing! LOVE it! Next time I will definitely add liquid. GREAT recipe!

    I LOVE this! One quick question – I used canned chickpeas and drained it. There wasn’t enough liquid and my blender would not blend it. I added some chicken broth because that’s all I had on hand. Was I not supposed to rinse and drain the canned chickpeas?

    I made this today for my husband who always says he doesn’t like hummus. Well, he likes this one!! Thanks for the recipe, I’m sure this won’t be the last time I’ll be making this.

  5. Made this today and it taste great! I had a super hard time blending though. It’s still chunky. There doesn’t seem to be enough liquid.

  6. Wow! This would save $$$ for sure. I am confused though. You wrote “I make all of my chickpeas in my Instant Pot and I store what I don’t use immediately inside of my freezer.” Are you freezing the hummus? Thanks so much!
