DOG’S DINNER TREATS
That right people, you read it correctly, we are making a dog’s dinner today. I’ve heard Gordon Ramsay use the phrase enough but never seen him produce, so I thought why not people.
Our dogs have been there for us over these last few years, and cooking fresh or making your own dog treats isn’t just about spoiling your dog, it’s about looking after them and making sure they are getting the nutrients that they need. We all go to Holland & Barrett’s and stock up on our Vitamins and minerals. With this recipe your dog is going to get a massive nutritional boost, helping with their skin, eyes, fur, muscles, nerves, vision, mood and so much more.
I hope you enjoy the video, as much as we did making it, and your dog’s enjoy it even more.
Dogs Dinner Ingredients
- 2 Carrots
- 150g Chicken Liver
- 1 cup of Kale
- 1 Sweet Potato
- 1 Cup of Green Beans
- 1/2 Cup of water
I use chicken liver as it’s a personal favourite of Bells (my parents’ dog, just in case you was wondering). You can use all different types of offal; heart, lungs or kidneys, and each one has a different amount of various nutrients. However, I have always found liver to be one of the best, packed with Iron, Zinc, Vitamin A, B and so many more. It is amazing, especially if your dog’s recovering from surgery or illness.
Ok so this is the easiest recipe in the world, put everything into a pan apart from the Cous Cous. Bring it all to the boil, and then allow it to simmer for ten minutes. Pour in the Cous Cous and cook for a further five minutes. Allow the mixture to cool down and there we have it people, your dog’s dinner. Lean in 15 as Joe Wicks would say, so no excuses people, happy days.
Not only will your dog be happy with something different for dinner, but packed with so much goodness, it really will be HAPPY DAYS!!!
- 1/2 Cup of mulled mixed seeds
- 1 Egg
- 1 Cup of Self Raising Flour
I know it seems like there’s not much to this, and that’s because there isn’t. This little gem is a super nutritional boost. In this, we have Vitamin A from the egg, Iron and Calcium from the flour, but most importantly, we have the crushed seeds. The pack normally consists of Sunflower, Pumpkin, Flax and Chia seeds. These seeds are full of potassium, selenium, serotonin, Manganese, Magnesium, Vitamins A, B’s and so much more. These amazing little ninjas are exactly what every dog needs.
All you do is mix everything together to make a dough, let it rest in the fridge for approximately half an hour, roll it out to about 1cm and cut using different cutters (whatever you have in the drawer, I am sure the dogs won’t mind). Place on a baking tray and cook for 18 minutes on Gas mark 6, then allow to cool.
And there we go everybody, something slightly different, but none the less a big thanks and a massive clap for this unsung hero, your dogs, also known as one’s best friend!!!!!
I would love to see how yours have turned out, so get sending in them videos or pictures of how your dog’s enjoyed them, or even some more ideas for future videos.
Happy days and see you next time!!!
A big thank you to the Cane Corsa Energia dog breeders, who helped produce the movie and its contents.
