“One of the great things about Pluto’s rubs and sauces is that you really don’t need a recipe. You can just put it on food, cook it or heat it, and eat it. When I don’t feel like being creative or thinking too much, I can just pick up a pre-cooked pork roast, pour some PLUTOS’s Carib-B-Q® on it, heat it up and enjoy. Or pull out some leftovers from the fridge, add some PLUTO’S Paradise Potion® to liven it up, and it’s a whole new dish.” – S.D.

1 Cup Basmati Rice
2 Cups Water
Salt, to taste
Butter (optional)
A Pinch of Thyme
1 Small Jalapeño (optional)
1/2 Cup of Diced Onion
1 Cup Mixed Vegetables (corn, peas, green beans, carrots etc.)
PLUTO’S Carib-B-Q® (mild or hot)

PLUTO’S Carib-B-Q® On Easy Street

  • Boil some potatoes (regular or sweet). Toss them with PLUTO’S Carib-B-Q®. Eat and enjoy!
  • Spread two slices of bread with PLUTO’S Carib-B-Q®. Eat and enjoy!

Linda’s Pluto’s Potatoes

These are called Linda’s Pluto’s Potatoes because I differ with Pluto about the methods of cutting the potatoes, applying the oil and the cooking (he says cube, drizzle and broil). But I agree with him all over the place about the wisdom of Blissing them out. Preheat oven to 450º. Cut up three pounds of potatoes into wedges and put them in a bowl. Drench your hands in olive oil and massage the potatoes until they’re shiny (more oil than this will make them too greasy.) Sprinkle with PLUTO’S Caribbean Bliss®, grab the edges of the bowl and toss or jostle the spuds until they’re Blissful. Spread in a roasting pan and place in hot oven. Shake them good after the first few minutes and about every 10 minutes thereafter. If your pans are as old as mine, they’ll stick a little. You might have to nudge them with a spatula. Roast till they’re soft inside, brown and crispy outside. Could take 45 minutes. You might want to sprinkle with some salt. Oh, mon.

Or pull out some leftovers from the fridge, add some PLUTO’S Paradise Potion® to liven it up, and it’s a whole new dish.
