Hoisin Sauce is a common ingredient in many Chinese American Dishes like Moo Shoo Pork and Peking Duck, and it is well loved by many people for it’s tangy, slightly fermented taste. Most commercial versions have wheat flour, so we’ve created one that you can make simply and quickly (and relatively cheaply!)


6 tablespoons dark brown sugar
3 tablespoons black beans, mashed into paste
1 tsp garlic paste
2 tablespoons white vinegar
3 tablespoon water
2 tablespoons gluten free soy sauce or tamari
2 tablespoon honey
4 teaspoons gluten free rice vinegar
1/2-1 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder (please check to ensure it’s gluten free!), depending on taste
1/2 teaspoon sesame paste (tahini)
1/4 teaspoon Sriracha or Chinese Red Pepper and Garlic sauce
2 Tbsp (about 1 oz or 28.3 g) Better Batter Gluten Free Flour

In a small saucepan, whisk together all ingredients, starting with 1/2tsp of chinese 5 spice powder. Taste and adjust 5 spice powder to adjust taste. Heat over medium heat, whisking constantly, until mixture thickens. Cool and store in fridge for up to 3 months.

    This is a terrific recipe with LOTS of applications! 🙂

    Of course, a gluten free soy sauce is a must, and for those of us who are also soy free (like me), a soy-free soy sauce alternative that is also gluten free is in order. I use Raw Coconut Aminos. It has a great soy sauce flavor with much less sodium per serving (and doesn’t taste a thing like coconut).

    Off to share this one with my readers!

    xo,
