Description:

Kung Pao is a popular class of recipes from the Szechuan region. It is basically a stir-fry with a spicy, velvety sauce that combines ingredients like Szechuan sauce and low sodium soy sauce. This pure vegan vegetarian version comes with an exotic combination of vegetables, cubed tofu.

Ingredients IQ:
Szechuan Pepper – This is the ingredient in Kung Pao sauce that makes it Kung Pao and not just any type of stir fry sauce. I describe it as a little bit lemony with a numbing spiciness, rather than hot spiciness like almost every other chilli.
