Recipe by Tara Holland


  • 1/2 cup canola oil

  • 2 tbsp. crushed red pepper

  • 1 tsp. crushed Szechuan peppercorns

  • 2 tsp. chopped garlic

  • 2 tsp. chopped ginger


Heat 1/2 cup canola oil until warmed. Off heat, stir in 2 tbsp. crushed red pepper, 1 tsp. crushed Szechuan peppercorns, and 2 tsp. each chopped garlic and ginger. Let cool. Store the oil in the fridge, where it will keep for about a month, giving you plenty of time to drizzle it over dumplings, noodles, and vegetables.
