There is nothing like wanting to make Chinese food
to drive you to make your own hoisin sauce.
I took two recipes and mashed them together and came up with this tasty hoisin sauce.
Don't be intimidated by the black bean paste in this recipe. Get out a can of black beans, scoop some into a blender and blend until smooth. I drained off most of the liquid but kept just a little so that when the beans got a little dry in the blender
I could add just a little to keep it pureeing.
4 Tbsp gluten free soy sauce
(you can use my Soy Free Gluten Free Soy Sauce or
2 Tbsp black bean paste
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp Tahini
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp molasses
2 tsp rice vinegar
2 tsp sesame oil
Hot sauce, Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce, or Chinese Red Pepper, add to taste
Mix all ingredients together and pour in a jar and store in the refrigerator.
