What is Hoisin Sauce?
Hoisin sauce is a sweet and salty sauce that is very similar in consistency to barbecue sauce but it’s used for a variety of Asian recipes.
The main thing if you want to keep this gluten-free is to check all labels because sometimes it’s hidden in some of the ingredients.
Remember that with Hoisin Sauce a little goes a long way!
Tips for Making Hoisin Sauce:
Once you have all the ingredients together it’s simply going to be warmed up on the stove and whisk together to form a great sauce.
Once it’s made, it can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container. It’s typically best not to keep this for more than about 2 weeks.
Is Hoisin Sauce Gluten-Free?
It can be gluten-free depending on what you put into the sauce. It needs to be made with gluten-free soy sauce, gluten-free tahini, and gluten-free chile sauce.
When I make this homemade, I always use gluten-free. I have found that it’s tricky to find a gluten-free store-bought version.
Be sure to check all ingredients and labels before considering it gluten-free even when making it homemade. The labels do change frequently too and without notice, so it’s always important to check them regularly.
