I bought some Five Spice powder from a shop thinking I remembered it in a number of recipes which I have now seemed to not be able to find. What are your favorite recipes for using it?

I just bought that to make Five-Spice Delicata Squash in AFR. I haven't tried it yet but it is the perfect time of year to attempt it!

Last time I followed a recipe that called for it was Chinese Mock Duck made from tofu skins. I also usually put a pinch in my spring rolls. Most recipes call for such a small amount of it that I will never work through my jar.

I was thinking of trying that recipe this week, but what are you serving it with? I can't think of anything at the moment.

Sorry to derail slightly!

I think it's used in the Acorn squash, pear, adzuki bean soup w/smoky shiitakes from Vcon.

Heh, good question.. I hadn't really thought about it. My fiance doesn't care for squash so I might just be eating it in snack-size portions at work.

This is great. I've had five spice forever and have no idea what to do with it except frequently mistake it for allspice. Don't do that.

yeah, it's tough. Maybe some simple baked tofu. I wanted to do a bean dish though, maybe some kind of lentils?

So far all I've really done is put it in my tofu scramble every once in a while.

I remember I bought a bottle of it a million years ago for a VWAV recipe. Maybe the jerk seitan recipe?

Sweet Potato Hash? It's great! With or without the watercress.

Banh Mi. It's used in the dipping broth for the Vietnamese Dip Sandwich thing in Vcon, too. I'm sure I use it for other things, but I can't think of any right now! That means this thread will be great because it is probably an under-used spice mix in my kitchen.

Yeah, that might have been it!

Also I know there is a recipe for Five Spice Cookies in one of the Isa books.

Yes! That hash is so good! Especially with watercress if you can find it.

i haven't tried any of them yet, but there's at least one recipe in Hannah Kaminsky's Vegan Desserts that uses five spice, and Dreena Burton also has a five spice cookie recipe in ED&BV.

I use it in stirfrys, especially ones with tofu.

I just put some in my ramen because I don't like to use the whole broth packet (too much sodium).

I can vouch that the five-spice snaps from Vegan Desserts are really good!

I have also used it in butternut squash curry, definitely recommend!

Me too. The YRR homemade applesauce recipe is my fave and I think that's the one that calls for five spice. Yum. I mean, usually I don't get too excited about applesauce but five spice really elevates it.

I use it to turn chickpea noodle soup into pho for lazy people.

That's the recipe I was thinking of! It's really, really good.

I always put some in squash soup. It's also good in tahini sauce.
