National Snack Food Month is happening in full force! My friends around the blog world have been sharing some awesome snack recipes lately to celebrate and I thought it was time I hop on the snack bandwagon too. I am the (self proclaimed) Queen of snacks, after all. 😉
Before I get to today’s recipe, I have a confession to make.
I have never had Sriracha before.
I know, I know. Crazy right? Everyone’s favorite condiment and I’ve never had it? Pretty unbelievable! But it’s true. My parents just never really bought it….I guess we’re more of a ketchup and mustard family. It’s not that I have anything against it. In fact I LOVE spicy food! So it seems like fate that I’d be a Sriracha fan. But in my 22 years of life, I’ve just never reached for it.
That is until a few weeks ago. I was out trying a new ramen noodle bar with my friends and just as I was about to dig in, when my friend remarked that I hadn’t put any Sriracha on. At that point, I knew I had to confess. I told her about the lack of Sriracha in my life up until that point and she INSISTED that I try it.
Well friends, a half a bottle later, I am in love! WHAT THE HECK HAVE I BEEN DOING WITH MY LIFE?! There are so many Sriracha topped eating experiences I could have been enjoying this whole time. It’s time to make up for lost time ASAP.
Starting with these Oil-Free Sriracha Roasted Walnuts. My first ever recipe with Sriracha and it’s a WINNER.

Nutty, crunchy, savory, and spicy. These nuts have it all! They’re super easy to make (less than 4 ingredients), vegan, gluten-free, and of course oil-free as well. Another plus, they make your house smell AMAZING. If you like the smell of spicy, salty food cooking you will love the aroma these give off. Seriously drool worthy.
Like I said, it’s National Snack Food Month, so I must insist you make these ASAP. Especially if you’re a Sriracha newb like me. 😉
