This guy has it right for the most part. The celery, and cabbage do need to be cooked, along with the garlic and ginger. With the bean paste at direction #3 in oil, before you add the water, or stock. I love the Sichuan region for the layers of flavors you can create in a short time. With the bean paste you can play with many more flavors. Dark soy, Black vinegar, sugar, sesame oil(use sparingly), and I would add some toasted white sesame seeds, and scallions cut on a bias as garnish, instead of cilantro. even though the chilis were brought to Sichuan from there, thats where it should stop.
