Hints and Tips
- Replacing veg. You can replace the courgette for one of or a mix of cauliflower, broccoli, kale, green beans, asparagus, cabbage, brussel sprouts. No onions, no leeks, no garlic.
- Carrots can be replaced by butternut, pumpkin or sweet potato. They are rich in vitamin A which your dog needs.
- You can swap the peanut butter for tahini if that suits you.
- Other options. You can bake the recipe in your lined oven proof tray if your dog likes a 'bite' to their food. Just add to a pre-heated oven of 180°C for 30 minutes.
- Always cool the cooked mix before adding the supplement on top. If the supplement mixture is heated, it loses its nutritional value.
- It is recommended to portion up into daily amounts before freezing. Each day you can defrost a fresh meal for your dog.
