Homemade Veggie Shake

This Homemade Veggie Shake is totally perfect for grilling up all of your favorite vegetables. Flavorful herbs and robust spices come together in a simple blend that elevates everything you sprinkle it on. This rub is made up of ingredients I almost always have on hand and saves so much money compared to the pre-made mixes on the market.

I created this homemade veggie shake specifically for grilled vegetables but to be honest with you, this makes some unbelievable grilled chicken and fish as well. It is really versatile and simple to use on anything you want to add a little extra zing to. Simply drizzle whatever you’re grilling with a little avocado or olive oil and liberally sprinkle on the homemade veggie shake.

PRO TIP: For homemade spice mixtures, I always try to use coarse ground Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Neither of these things are required, but they will elevate your rubs to a more gourmet flavor and appearance.

Homemade Veggie Shake for grilled vegetables

This spice blend only makes enough for 1 large batch of grilled veggies. If you want to make a bunch to store, I recommend multiplying the recipe and storing in airtight containers. I like to save my old spice jars and wash them out, that way when I have homemade rubs prepared I can store them easily. This mixture will last several months, so it is a great one to make and keep on hand.

I would recommend trying this rub on these Grilled Cauliflower Steaks, these Grilled Tortellini and Sausage Skewers, and even this Cedar Plank Salmon for starters!

  1. Some of your rubs and seasoning recipes have a short shelf life of 1 – 3 months. The shelf life of the ingredients to make them is typically 1- 3 years. If my ingredients are well within their shelf life is the actual mix shelf stable for longer than the recommended 1 – 3 months? Thanks – I love making your rubs and plan to give some as Christmas treats.
