Chinese 5 Spice is commonly used in Chinese and Taiwanese cuisines and is a great way to give your dish a fresh Asian twist. 5 Spice is a blend of cinnamon, cloves, fennel, star anise and Szechuan peppercorns. Some variations of the spice contain ginger, nutmeg or licorice. This recipe calls for a traditional Chinese 5 Spice that can be found in most markets but I will also be adding chopped ginger to the soup to as an immunity booster in preparation for these cooler nights.
