Hoisin sauce is a thick, brown Chinese dipping sauce. Typically it is made from fermented soybeans, garlic, vinegar and sugar, it imparts a pleasantly sweet-tart, slightly salty taste to foods. If you’ve ever ordered moo shu, it’s the sauce that’s smeared on the thin crepe.
Here’s how to make your own Hoisin Sauce, by blending a handful of flavorful ingredient in the blender, in order to avoid the soy and cane sugar found in store bought hoisin – this homemade version is so much better than the pre-made kind! Use this sauce to make Mu Shu Chicken and Veggies!

- 4 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon Garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons chili paste
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- Combine all of the ingredients in a high speed blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
