I am one of those crazy dog ladies who cooks homemade food for their dog. We never found a kibble that worked out quite right, so I decided to start cooking for her. I also love Just Food For Dogs, however it got to be pretty pricey especially since my 1 year old puppy is 100 lbs. They have these amazing DIY kits that I just discovered that you can buy for a fraction of the price. It is a canister of nutrients that you add to their recipes to make sure your dog is getting the most out of her homemade meal! In addition to the DIY kits, sometimes I mix things up and make my own Doggy Entrees for Scout. Here is one of her favorites!
1 Lb. Turkey
16 Oz Chopped Broccoli
16 Oz Chopped Butternut Squash
1-2 Tablespoons vegetable oil for pan
I like to buy all organic frozen veggies for her, since I have to make so much of it, I keep several bags of frozen peas, chopped broccoli, chopped carrots and butternut squash in the freezer so they are always ready!
I like to use a wok because this makes a pretty large portion of food!
Heat the vegetable oil in the wok and add the ground turkey.
Sauté the turkey till browned and add the chunks of butternut squash and leave the lid on this time so it steams the frozen squash.
After a few minutes, once the squash begins to soften, add the frozen chopped broccoli.
Once the broccoli and squash are warm, I stir it all together so it breaks up the squash and mixes all the turkey evenly throughout the veggies.
Before serving this to Scout, I make sure it’s cooled down (sometimes I throw in an ice cube to speed things up).
For Scout, this recipe only makes 2 meals, but it is so simple to just throw those 3 ingredients together. It also only costs about $6 if you get the turkey and veggies on sale.
Voila! Your dog now loves you a little bit more and will probably refuse to eat kibble ever again 🙂
