- 500g (1lb 2oz) Turkey Mince
- 84g (3oz) Lentils
- 75g (2 ½oz) Carrots (skin on, finely diced)
- 67g (2 ¼oz) Peas (frozen)
- 58g (2oz) Butternut Squash (peeled, finely diced)
- 42g (1 ½oz) Kale (finely chopped)
- 8g (¼oz) Blueberries (halved)
- 500mg (tiny pinch) Himalayan Rose Pink Salt
- 8g (2 heaped tablespoons) Dog Food Seasoning
- 10g (4 level teaspoon) Essential Calcium for Dogs
- 56ml (3 tablespoons) Salmon Oil
Add turkey mince to a pan with 285ml (½ pint) of water and the Dog Food Seasoning. Cook on a low heat until the meat turns brown and any liquid is clear. Drain any liquid into the lentil/vegetable pan and set cooked meat aside.
Add lentils to turkey water. Cook for approximately 10 minutes before adding vegetables, longest cooking times first. In this case, carrots first followed 5 minutes later by the peas and butternut squash. When cooked, turn off heat and add the kale and the blueberries. After about 5 minutes add the Essential Calcium for Dogs and salt to the lentils and vegetables and then blend all the ingredients together.
Allow mix to cool before adding the salmon oil and then apportioning and/or serving. Either freeze what you don’t immediately need or keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.
