Recipe: Cashew Chicken and Hoisin  Sauce

Recipe: Cashew Chicken and Hoisin Sauce

My husband really like Chinese foods. Unfortunately, we don’t have a lot of great options for local Chinese cuisine that meets our food standards. We like to avoid MSG, GMO soy sauce, and CAFO meats as much as possible. Thankfully, I’ve been able to real foodify one of our favorites: Cashew Chicken. And the hubs is totally in love with it. And so am I.

The homemade hoisin sauce does contain soy sauce… and generally soy is an ingredient I avoid. But if you purchase organic fermented soy sauce, I think it’s a great ingredient to use every now and then. Just be sure to avoid non-organic varieties as they are usually GMO. (Learn more about why I avoid most soy here.)
