Recipe: LC Hoisin Sauce

  • 2 T sugar free peanut butter (I have used the peanut butter powder, PB2 or similar)
  • 1/4 c soy sauce
  • 2 t. balsamic vinegar
  • 1-2 t. hot oil
  • 1/2 t garlic powder
  • 1/8 t xanthem gum or other thickener

Mix all ingredients in a bowl or shake in a jar.

For the ingredients to add to the sauce, slice up a couple of chicken breasts thin, a container of fresh mushrooms and a can of water chestnuts. Sometimes I also add chopped zucchini.  Stir fry the chicken, then add the mushrooms, and water chestnuts.  Add the Hoisin sauce, heat a few minutes, then enjoy! Of course you can add any variety of ingredients to this sauce. Sometimes I serve on a bed of lettuce like pictured here, or with lettuce leaves and wrap.  Make sure to have plenty of napkins if wrapping in lettuce. This is an amazing quick nutritious dinner without the sugar of the restaurant, but you have to do the dishes, sorry!
