    Hoisin sauce can be quite samey – so I loooooove your enhancements. I can’t wait to try it. 🙂

      Yep I know what you mean. The good thing is it makes a good base for all kinds of things by just adding in a few other tasty ingredients!

    I’m all over this! Rude not to be, considering how simple it is! And I’ve always got a secret stash of peanut butter to call upon…

      Go the secret stash! But it better be crunchy peanut butter… 😉

    I love recipes that are big on flavor and small on ingredients. I can see using this on so many things…maybe cold soba noodles with this as the dressing.

      I would definitely give that a try – if you do, let us know how it goes!

      Haha which it frequently does! So addicted to that chilli zing, especially alongside the fresh flavours of mint and coriander in cold rolls.

      Don’t you just love when that happens?? Ooh hope you enjoy the paperless spring rolls, they’re almost as much fun to make as they are to eat, and they look so gorgeous on the plate too. 🙂

    YUM! I’ve made peanut sauces better (LOVE!) but I’ve never added hoisin. Definitely trying your version next time!

      04/03/2016 at 12:01 pm

      Peanut sauces are the bomb! This one with hoisin has all of the salty/sweet love going on so it’s really great with Asian dishes. Thanks for stopping by Megan, hope you enjoy! 🙂

    You bet I am going to be making this in my kitchen real soon!! This is like the kind of sauce I will always blend for my friends when we are having steamboat dinner and they love it! The magic is in the peanuts isn’t it? Thanks for the share!

    • Wandercooks
      01/03/2016 at 9:05 am

      So much peanut magic it’s ridiculous haha. That sounds like an incredible combo with the steamboat too, what an awesome idea!

    Oooh.. this sounds yummy. I can imagine the intensity of this sauce with the peanut butter. I think this would be nice with a gamey meat too

    • Wandercooks
      01/03/2016 at 9:04 am

      Oh wow never thought of that! Thanks Renz. We’ll have to experiment and let you know how that goes. Incidentally, what meat would you try first?

    Hoisin and peanut dipping sauce is my fave with fresh spring rolls. I have a slightly different version, but loving yours with the addition of garlic, yum!
