Homemade Hoisin Sauce

As those of you who follow a primal or paleo lifestyle know, often it is hard to find sauces in the store that don’t contain wheat products, peanuts, sugar, corn products, etc. And since we don’t use these things in our diet, it can be frustrating! So here is a homemade Hoisin Sauce recipe that is free of all of those things!

You will need:

3/4 cup wheat-free tamari

1/3 cup of nut butter (i.e. almond butter, cashew butter, sunflower butter, etc.)

3 tbsps. raw honey (if using raw honey you might use a little less) or grade b maple syrup

2 tbsps. white vinegar

2 tbsps. dark sesame oil

1/4-1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/4-1/2 tsp. black pepper

1 tsp. hot sauce (more or less depending on your taste)

I mix all the ingredients together in a bowl with a whisk. Sometimes especially if working with raw honey I heat the mixture just a little in the microwave to melt. This recipe will make enough for 1-2 recipes of my Chicken Asian Lettuce Wraps. Sometimes I double the recipe and store it in the fridge for future use. When I use it out of the fridge I microwave it a little so I can once again make sure all the ingredients are mixed throughly.

    Hm…mine tastes more like peanut sauce. Not bad, but not hoisin-ish. Granted, I put too much garlic and black pepper and used coconut oil instead of sesame.
