Barbecue spice rubs may be great on grilled and roasted meats, but have you ever thought to use them to spice up your vegetable side dishes? Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q’s variety of spice rubs are also perfect for seasoning veggies because they contain great blends of spices and flavors, like paprika, ancho chili, mustard, coffee and lime. The best part: all the seasoning you need is in one jar.
The following recipes for grilled, spice-rubbed bell peppers and asparagus, and roasted corn on the cob with rub, are great for grilling in the summertime but equally as easy to roast in the oven or on the stove top in a grill pan any time of the year. I used Stubb’s smoky Steak Rub on the bell peppers and asparagus, which has pepper, garlic, onion, and ancho chile, and I picked Stubb’s Bar-B-Q Rub because the paprika and turmeric give the corn an injection of savory flavor and a pop of orange-red pop of color.
Pick your favorite Stubb’s rub flavor combination and try it out on your grilled, roasted, sauteed, or even raw vegetables to add a quick, easy and flavorful kick to your next home-cooked meal.
