Sichuan peppercorns are an indispensable part of traditional cuisine from the Sichuan Province in China. Their robust bouquet of sweet, sour and peppery flavors are accompanied by a distinctive numbing sensation that brings harmony to spicy foods. This Sichuan stir fry is vegetarian and gluten free without making any compromises or sacrificing one ounce of flavor.
