Soy-Free Hoisin Sauce

It’s official. I have a severe intolerance to soy and wheat, DaRn-iT! That’s the bad news. The good news is that thankfully there is almost always a workaround that is just as good as or even better than its allergy-inducing counterpart. This Hoisin Sauce recipe is proof of that.

Soy-Free Hoisin Sauce

Yield: about 1.25 cup


• 1/2 cup maple syrup

• 9 pitted deglet noor dates

• 1/3 cup chickpea miso OR chickpea-barley miso

• 2 tbsp coconut aminos OR chickpea tamari

• 2 tbsp unsweetened rice vinegar

• 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds*

• 1 large garlic clove

• 1/8 tsp ground coriander

• 1 petal dried star anise

• 1/8 tsp hot chili powder

• 1/16 tsp cinnamon


Add all ingredients to a high powered blender (my Breville Boss-to-Go was powerful enough) and process until smooth

Store in airtight container in the fridge
