Our purple label chili crisp features fermented soybeans (豆豉, or dòuchǐ) to reach a new level of fun, funky, lip-smacking umami flavor. These are Magic Beans.

Fermented soybeans are the backbone of many Asian dishes— think Sichuanese mapo tofu (麻婆豆腐), Korean noodles in black bean sauce (짜장면), and Cantonese stir-fry. For this reason, our serving suggestions include some of Lani’s childhood favorites from San Francisco’s Chinatown: poached chicken, beef chow fun, steamed clams, noodle soups, and fried rice.

But the beautiful thing about Magic Beans is that it goes on everything!! Buy yourself a jar and embark on a magical adventure.


Ingredients: Olive oil, fermented black soybeans (soybeans, ginger, salt), shallots, chili peppers, sugar, Sichuan peppercorns, mushroom powder, spices, citric acid.

This product does NOT contain nuts. It DOES contain soy. It’s still vegan, gluten free, MSG-free, and downright badass. 

This product is shelf stable and there is no need to refrigerate after opening. It is olive oil-based so will firm up when cold. 

Orders usually ship out within 2-3 business days.

Magic beans!

We absolutely love magic beans! Last night we made fried rice, bbq’d salmon placed them in a bowl and topped with Magic Beans- delicious does not even describe it! We just need the larger jar! We have ordered two small jars at a time and we only get 2-3 uses out of them. Bring back the large jars...

Truly the Secret Sauce

Magic Beans are just SO GOOD. A little goes a long way. One of my favorites is as a perfect finish on Avocado Toast. You guys nailed Umame, Spicy, Salty, Sweet, Astringent and Texture all in one Condiment. So happy I found you at the Market.

Better than your best dream

Better than your best dream,
This sauce has subtle it exciting tastes in it that will add to whatever you’re cooking up in the best way. It taste like something really nourishing, but also divinely spicy! . My advice is - don’t miss it just get it.

Cannot get enough, so good

Ever since I tasted a tiny spoonful at the Occidental Farmers’ Market I have been buying ever increasing numbers of jars. First a jar, then 3, then 10. Now I am trying to figure out how many to buy for gifts for the holidays… this is tricky because who wouldn’t want a jar!
