These dry rubs add fabulous herb flavors without fat, salt, refined sugar or dairy. Both dry rubs also work well with tofu, mushrooms and vegetables.

Garlic and Ancho Dry Rub 

This fiery blend is good on lean meats and tempeh. If this mixture is too potent, decrease the ancho and chipotle, and substitute more garlic and paprika.

• 1 tablespoon granulated garlic
• 1 tablespoon ground ancho chile peppers
• 1 1/2 teaspoons ground chipotle peppers
• 1 1/2 teaspoons sweet paprika

1. Stir together all ingredients, and store in an airtight container up to 6 months.

2. Rub mixture on food before cooking; drizzle with a small amount of canola oil, if desired.
