Homemade Hoisin Sauce

This is better than any store-bought hoisin sauce. Use it with any Asian meal.

One of our favorite meals to make during the busy week is my P.F. Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps. So easy, so delicious, kid favorite! Need I say more? The only problem is that a small bottle of Hoisin sauce from my co-op is $8! Yikes! It barely makes two meals worth. Being the frugal Mama that I am, I decided to try my hand at making my own. 

Note: we do not make it a habit to regularly consume soy products. We NEVER consume GMO soy! But, fermented soy is different. Fermented soy is better because the fermentation process removes the trypsin inhibitors, which hinder the absorption of nutritive compounds found on the coating of soy. The Miso paste that I use in this recipe is organic, non-GMO, and fermented. Good stuff!
