Five-spice seasoning is a Chinese blend of star anise, cloves, cinnamon, Sichuan pepper, and fennel. Each of these spices are a flavor powerhouse, and when combined, complement each other perfectly, kinda like all the superheroes in the Avengers. Fill up on soup and lightly stir-fried salad, both enhanced with this uniquely delicious flavor!
