These are a few recipes that both humans and dog have enjoyed lately
This dish is a bit of a mish mash of ideas You can vary the amounts of ingredients to match the number of people and canines who will be dining. I aim to cook about 150gs of chicken per person. I generally add onions and mushrooms (for the humans only) and whatever other vegetables I have handy.
Today we added peppers and spinach. It is made like a stir fry. Cut some chicken into strips and cook for about 5 minutes, add the vegetables of choice. I usually remove the dog's chicken and cook it with the vegetables which she is able to eat in a small pan next to ours. When the vegetables are cooked to your liking, add the pesto sauce and stir through. You can buy the sauce or make your own. It is simple to make.
50gs pine nuts
1 pack of fresh mint (I use Aldi)
4 tablespoons of olive oil.
Blend together and that is it. Simple and very tasty. I think most pesto uses Basil but whatever is to your taste. You can add Parmesan for the humans if they like it and don't forget to add your calcium source to the dog's bowl.
I would serve this particular dish with either brown rice or sweet potato.
This dish is a firm favourite with the whole family. On paper, I didn't think it sounded terribly exciting but on the plate, it was a delicious surprise. I found the recipe on Allrecipes
and we have been enjoying it as a family meal for a while. Since the dog has been on some home cooked, I saw that, with a few, modifications, it would be perfect for her too.
I don't add onion, salt or pepper to the dog's. I cook it in a very low salt, gluten free, kallo stock cube.
For the human portion we add onions, a tbsp of curry powder and seasoning to taste.
It is quick to make and can all be done in one pan, with a little pan on the side for the doggy version. Again don't forget to add your calcium source. (I use powdered egg shells)
This next dish is a deconstructed chicken wrap. The humans have this with some spices. The dog has my wheat free tortilla which is grated cauliflower mixed with egg and lightly fried. She has some plain chicken and a biscuit made from ground flax, blueberries, spirulina and coconut oil on the side.
She often has a little natural fat free yogurt and berries after her meal.
