  • First, use a sharp knife to mince and mash up the dates until they’re the consistency of a thick, sticky paste.
  • Next, combine the minced dates with the rest of the ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 7 minutes or until the sauce thickens and darkens. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
  • Want a smoother sauce? Blitz it with an immersion blender or high powered blender (my Vitamix gets it super smooth) until it reaches your desired consistency. Time to slather this paleo hoisin sauce on everything!
