I'm your typical busy Mum; juggling, work, home and family activities and am always on the lookout for quick, healthy dinner ideas that must also pass the 'yum test'. Being pretty health-conscious with friends and kids who have allergies, I know it's often a struggle to find 'clean & honest' meal flavourings that aren't packed with MSG, preservatives and artificial additives. Like most Kiwis, many years ago my experimenting with herbs and spices came from those generic little supermarket boxes. However, once I discovered the incredible flavour you get from using more exotic, freshly ground spices a whole new world of vibrant tastes opened up and our range of all natural Herb+Spice Rubs was born.
I've always wanted Raptor Naturals - Herb and Spice Rubs to be delicious, easy to use and natural. We never compromise on quality or add cheap fillers, artificial flavours or free-flow agents. Our rubs are crafted with only the best quality gourmet ingredients any chef or foodie would be proud of but easy enough for anyone to use to create deliciously quick meals. My 13 year old daughter (occasionally) helps cook dinner with her all time fave Herbes Chicken Rub, my Aunty never cooks her roasts without a sprinkle of our Lamb & Vegetable Rub and there's a whole following of Raptor fans out there who love sharing their everyday meals ideas whenever they see us at shows around NZ. I'm always stoked to hear our happy customers tell me about their fussiest eater in the family who will now eat meat and vegies that they previously wouldn't touch!
I'd love to hear your feedback and recipe ideas. You'll see me regularly posting our dinners on Facebook and Instagram- they might not look fancy- but they're quick, easy and most importantly, taste great.
Happy rubbing, cooking and eating!
