About This Recipe

“I haven’t tried this, but it’s supposed to be a great dipping sauce for Vietnamese-style fresh spring rolls. I found it on the Kitchen Chick blog, and it is apparently adapted from “Foods of Vietnam” by Nicole Routhier. If you are gluten-free you can find gluten-free hoisin sauces made by brands such as Kame or Premier Japan.”

Ingredients

    • 1/4 cup roasted peanuts, ground, for garnish
    • 1 tablespoon peanut oil
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 teaspoon chili paste or 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce
    • 1/2 cup chicken broth or 1/2 cup water
