How do you Rub With Love?

February 15, 2016

Valentine’s Day has passed, but that doesn’t mean the love has to stop. All month long we have Tom Douglas’ Rub With Love on sale, so you can keep making delicious dishes for your sweetheart.


However, we know not everyone is a master chef (or even an Easy-Bake chef), and that’s OK. We’re here to help! We’ve picked an appetizer, side, and an entree, so your whole dinner can be filled with Love. First up:


Roasted Veggie Dip (feat. Veggie Rub With Love)





2 cups cut chopped veggies (1″-2″ pieces of carrots, broccoli, peppers, or whatever you have)

1/4 olive oil

2 tbsp. Rub With Love Veggie Rub

1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt

Cooking Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spread veggies on a baking sheet and drizzle with 1/4 cup olive oil. Coat veggies evenly with 1 tbsp. ┬áRub With Love Veggie Rub. Cook for 10 minutes, mix/flip veggies, and cook for 10 more minutes, or until veggies are soft. Allow to cool and dice into fine pieces; yields about 1 cup. Then, mix the sour cream, yogurt, and your diced veggies together with 1 tbsp. of Veggie Rub. You’re done! Serve with crackers, veggies, or anything else your heart desires.




Oven-Fried Sweet Potatoes (feat. Steak Rub With Love)





2 1/2 pounds medium sized sweet potatoes

6 tbsp. olive oil

1 tbsp. Steak Rub With Love


Ground black pepper


Cooking Instructions

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cut sweet potatoes lengthwise into 1/2″ thick wedges. Place in a large bowl with Steak Rub, then toss with oil. Divide between 2 baking sheets and spread evenly, making sure to get all the oil and spices from the bowl. Cook for 15-20 minutes, then turn wedges over and cook for another 15 minutes until potatoes are browned and tender. Remove from oven, add salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately while still hot.


These homemade sweet potato fries will be a hit with guests, and they’re a healthy alternative to traditional french fries!
