Asian 5 Spice Mix

 This spice mix is great for when you are making home made Asian food.   Its my favorite go-to blend.  Add this to any Asian dish as you cook, and your kitchen will smell like an Asian restaurant!   Its easy to make and stores well.  I highly recommend buying the "Badia" brand of spices, usually found in the hispanic foods section-- most grocers carry it, and they are 1/2 to 1/4 the price of other spice brands.  You can also find some of these in dollar stores.

Asian Spice Mix:


  • 1 tsp. ground Szechwan pepper
  • 1 tsp. ground star anise
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground white pepper

Place all ingredients into a bowl and blend well.  Store in a tightly sealed (labeled) container.
