What People are saying

SICHUAN CHILI OIL

Blank Slate Sichuan Chili Oil – it’s so good!

Samin Nosrat / Chef, TV Host, Food Writer

Blank Slate Kitchen Sichuan Chili Oil, with its intriguing, slightly gingery zip, is the answer. I keep it in my refrigerator to perk up just about everything from Ma Po Tofu to steamed spinach.

I was almost brought to tears when I tasted this the first time. FINALLY a whole realm of my favorite dishes are literally at my finger tips. This is absolutely the real deal.

Best Stuff Ever
I received this as a present and I am in love with it! I put this on *almost* everything, it’s just that good. What I like most about this chili oil is all of the flavor that’s packed into it, it’s not just chilis. It has ginger, shallots, and garlic too that make the taste that much better. I’d also say it makes a great gift because it looks fancy and tastes great!

James

I absolutely love this chili oil and probably go through a jar every two months. It is addictively delicious. I use it on absolutely everything – on fried eggs, in noodle, rice and stirfried meat and veggie dishes, in sandwiches. I drizzle it on avocado toast. Very spicy so just put the amount you need. I have spent alot of time in China and Sichuan huajiao pepper and sichuan seasoning are some of my favorite flavors – I think Blank Slate has really captured the right balance here.

Lucia

It is an essential item in my kitchen and is beloved in ramen and on eggs, hash browns and even tuna fish sandwiches. My kids (ages 8 & 4) also use it with frequency. Why? It has a wonderful blend of many rich flavors – it is warm ( not super spicy), rich, balanced and gives the tongue an addictive tingle. I give jars away as gifts and consistently get compliments. This is a unique product I can’t recommend highly enough.

Ok this just changed my life and is making my mouth SO HAPPY. O.M.G, first of all, how do they even make this stuff because when you open the jar it’s basically SO FRESH the aroma just smacks you in the face like you just made it yourself in a blender. TBH sometimes I just eat it off a spoon right out of the jar.

Chiclet

Well, this stuff is absolutely delicious and exceeded expectations! So herby and just the right amount of kick, the perfect complement to fish, chicken, or any meat I imagine.

Whitney

This is an incredible jar of hot sauce in the Middle Eastern sour zhug style. It tastes as if it were made fresh five minutes ago, with an intense, rich herbal flavor.

Anonymous

It’s you favorite middle eastern market or food truck in a jar. If you like zattar and things like that you’ll love this on a pita.

Daniel

Wow this stuff is so good! I love the brightness of the lemon and the spice of jalapeños. It’s a really great blend to put on sandwiches.

Mel

This luscious green sauce is way beyond just spicy. Rich with herbal goodness, a little bit of this green magic works wonders.
