The seasoning blend called Chinese five-spice adds a warm note without pushing the cabbage into salad territory. I had never used this spice before but boy does it make a difference. Cooked carrots add a hearty and flavorful part of the dish. This sheet pan dinner will feel your home with the most amazing smells ever. The roasting of the ingredients together on a sheet pan saves time, reduces cleanup, and adds a little something, something that I can’t explain. 



How many of you like ‘Chinese Five Spice’? I absolutely love the warmth of the spices and the depth of flavor. As five-spice blend is not readily available where I live. I had never heard of this spice combination before until it came up in my feed and then I was on a mission to try it!
