RECIPE: Sriracha Shrimp and Noodle Soup
Doesn’t this recipe look divine? Rich with shiitake mushrooms, fresh ginger, sesame, cilantro, tomatoes, peanuts, and our belovèd Sriracha… I just found it on the Stonewall Kitchen web site and I have to say: it sounds absolutely delicious!
For anyone looking to make this vegetarian- and vegan-friendly, feel free to swap in vegetable broth (or water) for the chicken stock and sub broccoli/cauliflower florets or cubes of tofu for the shrimp, but be sure to sauté them with the other chopped veggies and mushrooms so they can cook through.

"Actually Tastes Like Sriracha" — VOTE for my Lay’s "Do Us A Flavor" submission
Was anybody else EXTREMELY disappointed with the Lay’s Sriracha potato chips that came from the last “Do Us A Flavor” contest? Formulated with sour cream, whey, cream cheese, Cheddar cheese, and Swiss cheese—among other mystery ingredients that aren’t in real Sriracha—it’s no wonder they missed the mark.
Well, here’s my solution: submitting “Actually Tastes Like Sriracha” as a flavor. But I NEED your votes to make this a possibility! There’s this whole rule thingy on the contest that says that new potential flavors must not “be the same or substantially similar to the original Do Us a Flavor finalists (Cheesy Garlic Bread, Chicken & Waffles and Sriracha)”… but my argument is that they were so far from a recognizable Sriracha flavor, that making something that does actually taste like Sriracha will be completely new!
But even if it’s disqualified on this little technicality, I’d love to send a strong message to Lay’s to let them know, “We who love Sriracha most thought your Sriracha chips were OK, but they tasted NOTHING like Sriracha!!” And the more votes I can get, the stronger that message is! And who could pass up an opportunity to win $1,000,000? Oh… did I forget to mention there’s a fatty prize for the winner?!? ;)
