Siracha WOWBUTTER on Toast with Cilantro

Okay, before you click away, just hear me out. This "recipe" (it's not much of a recipe but a suggested pairing) is actually quite good.

I first saw the combination (albeit using peanut butter) on Pinterest and the recipe comes from the folks at Bon Appetit. The savory nutty soy butter pairs wonderfully with the sweet spicy siracha sauce. I also garnished my version with cilantro.

We go through a lot of Siracha in this house.

For those of you who aren't familiar with WOWBUTTER, it is a soy butter that tastes, looks and smells and feels like peanut butter. This family owned Canadian company produces non-GMO soy butter in a peanut-free, tree nut-free, dairy-free and gluten-free environment. This former peanut butter addict had a hard time telling the difference between WOWBUTTER and peanut butter. In our house, we are stocked with two jars of Wow Butter, always ready for a quick snack. The little man is a huge fan of WOWBUTTER as licks his fingers clean after he smears a good amount of it in his hair first.

Siracha sauce is a hot sauce made from chili pepper paste, distilled vinegar, garlic, sugar and salt. It is commonly used in Thai and Vietnamese cuisine as a dipping sauce and in soups, noodles, banh mi sandwiches and spring rolls. Huy Fong Foods (with the iconic rooster on the bottle) introduced siracha to North Americans and you can now find siracha sauce used in other cuisines.

I can foresee this flavor combination catching on. I am excited to try this over spaghetti noodles tossed with shredded cucumber. Stay tuned for that recipe!

Which one tastes better? With or without cilantro?

Ingredients
1 slice of store-bought or homemade bread, toasted or untoasted
2 to 3 tbsp WOWBUTTER (or soy butter)
Siracha hot sauce, to taste
Cilantro leaves, to taste (optional)

Directions
1. Spread Wow Butter on a slice of bread. Drizzle with siracha hot sauce and top with cilantro leaves.

It tastes better with more cilantro.
