This simple hoisin peanut sauce recipe is packed with delicious sweet and salty flavour. Ready in under 5 minutes it’s the perfect dipping sauce for rice pepper rolls, veggies or stir fries! 


  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar apple cider vinegar 
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 45 tablespoons water
  • 12 tablespoons crushed roasted peanuts


  1. In a medium bowl, add the hoisin sauce, peanut butter, rice vinegar, garlic and 1 tablespoon of water. Whisk well into a super thick sauce.
  2. Slowly whisk in the remaining water until desired consistency is reached. Add 1 tablespoon at a time, whisk and repeat until you like the texture. I added 3 tablespoons, but you could go up to 4 tablespoons for a loose and thinner consistency.


Store leftover sauce in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
