One little question from our kiddo lead us to make the most amazing green veggie burger with spicy sauce just in time for summer nights on the patio! "Why are all veggie burgers brown?" he asked. We were stumped until we realized that it's because most veggie burger recipes are pretty light on actual "veggies". We set out to create a green veggie burger that celebrates the natural goodness of greens and is packed with great taste.
But a burger on its own is not complete...it needs the perfect burger sauce.
Ketchup & mustard were not going to do for these babies so we whipped up some gorgeous spicy vegan aioli using our secret weapon - Sriracha Revolver Beet & Tequila hot sauce!
Who are we kidding? This sauce is so good we can't just keep it for burgers...yam fries, sandwiches...even pizza has been dipped in this gold. And our green veggie burger recipe was so quick to make, we even had time to use Sriracha Revolver sauce to mix up some Spicy Mango Pineapple Margaritas!
A LITTLE OR A LOT...IT'S UP TO YOU!
A little of a good hot sauce goes a long way, but a lot is also yummy!
We love to add these Sriracha Revolver hot sauces to:
- chicken strips
- yam fries
- chicken or cauliflower wings
With inspired flavour combinations that are exotic but also familiar, Sririacha Revolver produces the most amazing selection of hot sauces sauces we have found anywhere. We have searched far & wide for sauces that are well balanced and flavourful but that also offer a choice in spice level. We didn't need to look far since Jordan Hocking and her team were making them right here in our own community.
Made locally with love, every bottle of Sririacha Revolver is pure joy!
