It’s no secret that I am obsessed with anything that contains Buffalo sauce. Maybe it’s because I’m from Buffalo & grew up eating the stuff, or maybe it’s because it’s the best condiment ever ever ever… but regardless I’m head over heels for it. I’m on a mission to make as many recipes including Buffalo sauce as possible now, because I 10/10 want it in every meal.

This Buffalo Hummus is so creamy & delicious, and has a bold kick from the hot sauce. This recipe is great because you can 100% adjust the amount of buffalo sauce to your liking, and it makes an amazing condiment on a sandwich instead of using something like mayo for a bit healthier topping!

Making this hummus couldn’t be simpler, and if you have a stocked vegan pantry / kitchen, you probably have most (if not all) of these ingredients already lying around! First in your food processor, add your garlic & pulse until its minced. This just helps it more evenly incorporate into the hummus once you add the other ingredients. Then you can add your chickpeas, salt, tahini, lemon juice, franks red hot sauce, cayenne, smoked paprika, & white pepper. Basically you just turn the processor on and scrape down the sides every so often, until you reach your desired consistency of hummus! I like mine very smooth, and also spicy, so I add a lot of hot sauce to thin it out- but you can easily add some water or chickpea liquid from the can to thin it out more as well if you don’t want it really spicy!

And that’s it! I told you… super easy. Takes about 5-10 minutes to make, theres really no prep, and it’ll last in your fridge for about a week (if you can make it last that long, haha)! I like to top mine with extra frank’s red hot & some celery leaves, and serve it with rainbow baby carrots, celery sticks, and toasted pita. It’s seriously the perfect dip, sandwich spread, etc. and I can’t wait for y’all to be just as obsessed as I am!

As always, I love seeing your recreations of my dishes, so make sure to tag me in photos on Instagram @plvntfood or #plvntfood so I can like & share them! Love y’all with all of my cold, little heart.
