Valentine’s Day Turkey & Veggie Dog Food RecipeLet’s face it dogs love turkey, so why not make your dog a special Valentine’s Day treat.If My Dog Could Cook has several recipes in our book that include turkey. Here is a new recipe that we are adding to our collection from skinnyms.com. So let’s get cooking. Your dog deserves only the best and canned stuff just won’t do.Ingredients:2 pounds lean ground turkey2 tablespoons raw turkey or chicken liver, finely diced or pureed2 medium carrots, coarsely chopped1 cup broccoli florets1 cup cauliflower florets1/2 zucchini, sliced2 tablespoons olive oilDirections:Add 1-1/2 cups water to a double boiler, place carrots in a steam basket over the pot and cover. Heat until boiling, reduce heat to a low boil and steam until carrots start to get tender, about 10 minutes. In the meantime, add the turkey and liver to a large skillet and cook on medium-high heat until done and there’s no more pink color. Drain off any fat and discard.Add broccoli, cauliflower, and zucchini, and continue steaming until all vegetables are tender, but not mushy, about 6-8 minutes. Allow vegetables to cool slightly then either chop in a food process or use a knife. The size of the vegetables will depend on the consistency preferred. We usually pulse about three times in the food processor and get the vegetables to a finely chopped consistency, similar to canned dog food.Add chopped vegetables to the turkey and liver, stir to combine. Add the olive oil and toss to combine with the turkey & veggie mixture. Allow to cool before dividing into freezer safe containers.NOTE: Ziploc bags are great for freezing individual meals and should be labeled with the date of preparation and name of the meal. The amount frozen for each meal will depend on the weight of your dog. Check with your vet regarding how much to feed your dog on a daily basis. Allow to defrost in the refrigerator the night before serving.Although the recipes we share are dog tested and dog approved, If My Dog Could Cook recommends consulting with your veterinarian to ensure that your dog’s diet includes all of its necessary nutrients.
