2 – 3 lbs raw, ground chicken or turkey (preferably antibiotic and hormone free)
4 cups of steamed, organic, sweet brown rice
1 cup grated summer squash or zucchini
1 cup grated broccoli
1 cup grated green beans
1 cup grated carrots
1 giant handful shredded spinach
1 small bunch grated parsley
½ cup grated celery
¼ cup coconut oil (optional)
1 tablespoon granulated, organic garlic powder
Prepare ingredients as suggested above. Joanie uses organic or clean, local vegetables in her cakes.
Using a food processor, finely grate vegetables. In a stand mixer, combine all ingredients. For muttballs, scoop 1 to 2 inch ball directly on a baking pan. For pup cakes, scoop directly into a lightly oiled (not sprayed) cake tin.
Bake in preheated oven, 350 degrees F. for 20 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven. Cool.
Store in airtight container and refrigerate up to 5 days. Or, place in freezer bags for up to 6 weeks.
Serve as a small sliver. Or, mix a couple tablespoons with their dog food. For dogs not used to eating this type of food, it’s recommended to start with smaller portions.
As you can see below, the party was a big hit with birthday dog Maggie. Just look at that grin. It says it all.
