I made a tofu scramble with this and black beans and green onions the other day and it was possibly the best scramble I have ever tasted.

I read this earlier to today and tried it tonight except with kale & cilantro instead of beans and onions and I put it in a taco. Super super delicious.

I just made this for the first time tonight. No idea what Frank's hot sauce is like-- I only had tabasco so I used that. After shaking a bunch out by the drop, I realized 1/3 cup would probably be way too much. I added some extra vinegar and more water and it turned out great. I have a ton left after after eating with black eyed peas, kale and mashed potatoes.

I'm making this soon! I've been eating giant bowls of veg + grain + bean for lunch, and this seems like the perfect addition :)

I'm gonna buy some Frank's tomorrow (right now I only have Tapatio) and make a bowl with some rice and frozen seitan and some kale for dinner. It has been decided!

That sounds amazing. Both of them.

I think sriracha might be too concentrated, but I could be wrong. Frank's is basically a Louisiana style cayenne pepper sauce. It's a bit more liquidy, less sweet, and more vinegary than the sriracha I've had. But maybe it'd work just fine!

If you try it, let us know!

I think the big difference with Frank's is that it isn't very spicy. I think sriracha or Tabasco would be too hot.

Frank's is less spicy, less sweet, more watery, and much more vinegary than sriracha. I can say from experience though that sriracha + tahini is delicious! I would just use a lot less than this particular recipe calls for, because in my opinion it's a much stronger flavor.

It lasts quite a while! I've definitely had it in my fridge for a week when I made a big batch, and it just needed a quick stir.

I did this, and it was the best homemade falafel wrap I've ever had! Do it!

I want to try it after reading all of this but yeah, I have no idea what sauce to use instead of the Frank's.

If you don't mind ordering online, you can get Frank's on Amazon UK. (With supersaver shipping to Belgium.) Or I can score some at the American Grocery here and be a hot sauce mule for you!

You guys weren't lying. This shiitake is amazing. I just want to eat it with a spoon, forever. Last night it went into a bowl with brown rice, steamed kale, and some seitan chunks that I marinated and then browned. Freaking tasty as fork.

I can attest that Tabasco is too hot. However I made it work by catching myself and using far less than the 1/3 cup called for. Even so, the final result is damn spicy.

What makes Franks unique is the tang of the vinegar. I found a recipe
http://www.howtocookhero.com/homemade-f ... hot-sauce/

Tabasco is similar but not quite. If you had a spicy sauce (like srirarcha) and added vinegar, it might approximate.

I made it thicker like a hummus for tacos...Loved it!!! Boyfriend said it was tart but he is not a fan of Frank's. BTW: Target has huugggeee bottles of Frank's for around $2! :)
