  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic from a jar or tube is fine
  • 2 teaspoons minced ginger from a jar or tube is fine
  • 1/3 cup low-sodium tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha sauce
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil


  • Combine garlic, ginger, soy sauce, honey, vinegar, and sriracha in a small bowl.
  • Heat oil in small saucepan over medium heat. Add soy sauce mixture and whisk until smooth. Cook, whisking often, until mixture thickens, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let cool.


Most bottled hoisin sauce has about 14g carbs per 2 tablespoons. This homemade version has half that amount.
Gluten-free? Make sure to use gluten-free tamari.
