We’re talking about all things plant-based hot sauce and it’s definitely getting hot in here. Made for cooking, marinading, and garnishing with a kick of flavor, these condiments always have a place in our kitchens. Whether you like it hot or prefer milder flavors, we’ve got a hot sauce recommendation with your name on it! If you’re looking to spice things up, check out our list of the best vegan hot sauce brands. What can we say? This lineup is straight fire.
This vegan hot sauce sounds like a party and tastes like the perfect sweet and spicy medium sauce. From tofu scramble to tempeh tacos, we’re adding Disco Sauce Original Hot Sauce to just about everything. Made with simple ingredients like orange juice, pineapple, and a disco pepper blend, what’s not to love? Don’t wait to snag a bottle of this versatile sauce.
This is one of those we’ll-take-one-of-each situations. Why? Because the vegan hot sauces from Hot N Saucy are seriously that good! From “Sweet Potato N Habanero” to “Collards N Ghost,” this Black-owned brand is known for its unique flavor formulations. Try these condiments on vegan chicken sandwiches, homemade grain bowls, and so much more.
We are obsessed with this homegrown hot sauce brand from Austin, Texas. In addition to providing a rich and complex flavor, Yellowbird hot sauces are made with simple, non-GMO ingredients and are gluten-free. We love to see it! The brand has a wide range of condiments to enjoy ranging in spice and Scoville. Find us adding the Classic Habanero Condiment and Blue Agave Sriracha to everything we eat!
Level up your plant-based cooking with Celebrate What You Eat “Let’s Salsa” hot sauces. Find Chipotle Apple Cider, Jalapeno Sichuan, and Habanero Pineapple sauces from this vegan hot sauce brand. Not only do these condiments add an extra flavor boost, but they pack just the right amount of heat. To our fellow spice lovers, we stand with you.
From dairy-free queso and tortilla chips to Mexican cookies and vegan hot sauce, Siete’s inventory is beyond impressive. Available in Habanero, Traditional, Jalapeno, and Chipotle, the vegan brand offers a spicy condiment for every occasion. Cap the end of your homemade taco bar with the Siete Jalapeno Hot Sauce. It’s seriously so flavorful and versatile.
The organic, gluten-free, vegan hot sauces from Poor Devil Pepper Company always come through. We’re obsessed with Little Frankie, the brand’s take on Buffalo-style sauce. But the spicy Mountain Mama keeps us as repeat customers. Can we get a “take me home, country roads” from the crowd? Of note, you’ll want to keep these raw, probiotic-rich sauces refrigerated even before opening.
For those who like it smoky and sweet with a touch of heat, Los Calientes is the vegan hot sauce for you. You might recognize this punchy sauce from Hot Ones, the celebrity interview series hosted by Sean Evans featuring increasingly hot wings. In plant-based news, Lizzo killed it when she took on the veganized Buffalo wings challenge earlier this year. But to no surprise, she did Good As Hell.
The Thai Green Hot Sauce might just be our love language. With spicy notes of cilantro and Thai ginger, what’s not to love? The flavorful brand offers many other gluten-free, vegan hot sauce varieties along with delicious condiments. Say goodbye to your go-to Tabasco and hello to a world of bold flavors.
This luxury condiment brand offers not one, but three vegan hot sauce varieties to become obsessed with. Each sauce is slightly hotter than the next and our fave is the Original Truff Hot Sauce. These gluten-free sauces pack notes of the rich and luxurious truffle mushroom alongside traditional chili peppers. Additionally, the brand also offers vegan-friendly pasta sauce.
With an impressive lineup of sauces, which to choose? So, that really depends on what you’re looking for. Ranging from hot to x-tremely hot, the question becomes how much heat can you handle? Opt for the Original Habanero or Jalapeno Pepper hot sauces if lower heat is your vibe. If you’re a walking fire-breather, the Scorpion Pepper sauce might suit your fancy. No matter what you choose, you might want a glass of oat milk on standby.
Our go-to TorchBearer sauce is the Sultry Sauce. Not only does this condiment pack a fun, inviting name, but it also brings a super flavorful heat. In addition to habanero peppers, this plant-based sauce contains mandarin oranges, tomatoes, and carrots—oh my! Vegan-friendly honorable mentions include Sweet Onion Habanero and Danny Wood’s Jalapeno Cilantro.
During her studies to become a registered dietitian, Anja—a longtime vegetarian—transitioned to a vegan diet. Living in Kalamazoo, Michigan at the time (Go Broncos!), she met Maggie and Tammie through VegOut Kalamazoo (one of VegOut’s first focus cities) and began collaborating with the duo. When she’s not writing about new vegan eats, practicing as a pediatric clinical dietitian, and virtually coaching fellow plant-based eaters, you can find her creating veg-centric recipes, trying new cruelty-free products, and spending time with her partner Addison and cat Kovu.
