Hoisin sauce is probably the last thing you’d think to bother making but when we were making our rice paper rolls we struggled to find a shop-bought sauce that wasn’t laden with sugar, preservatives and coloring agents. Amounts of the ingredients can be adjusted to suit individual tastes so you can make your sauce sweeter, more nutty and/or more spicy. Perfect for smearing in your burgers or dunking some chunky homemade chips in.
