Turkey & Veggie Dog Food Recipe

Healthy Dog Food Recipe made with human grade ingredients.

Our dog food and treat recipes are all made with 100% natural, human-grade ingredients. In other words, we recommend dog food made with clean and healthy foods that you use in your recipes for your own meals. In concocting our dog food recipes, we research which ingredients are best for dogs to eat and digest, create the recipes, test them on our own dogs and dogs of friends and family. Then, we share the recipes on SkinnyMs. so that your dog can also enjoy wholesome, clean eating dog food and treats. This Turkey and Veggie dog food recipe is made with lean, ground turkey and nutrient rich vegetables that will boost your pet’s health and wellness. Safflower oil is added to help give shine to your dogs coat and provide needed fats for a healthy diet.

NOTE: Check with your veterinarian before making any changes to your pet’s diet. Also, please be aware of any allergies your pet may have to specific ingredients and avoid ingredients which have caused reactions in your pets in the past. If you are unsure about a specific ingredient found in one of our dog food recipes, introduce the food to your pets in small amounts first.

Ingredients:

2 pounds lean ground turkey
2 tablespoons raw turkey or chicken liver, finely diced or pureed
2 medium carrots, coarsely chopped
1 cup broccoli florets
1 cup cauliflower florets
1/2 zucchini, sliced
2 tablespoons olive oil

Directions:

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.

    Is this meal sufficient for a dogs daily diet, meaning no supplements to include such as vitamins and minerals?

      Carol, Please talk to your vet about your dog’s individual needs. For example, my dog gets a variety and I sometimes add fish oil and/or probiotics just before he eats. Sometimes he gets grass-fed ground beef with veggies and a little beef liver cooked in. At any one time, I have 2-3 gallon size ziplock bags packed with meals in individual quart size baggies…all in the freezer. I usually cook for a few hours every other week. It’s work, but he’s so worth it. 🙂

      I get a lot of recipes from Dr. Becker’s Real Food for Dogs and Cats.

      Hope this helps. 🙂

    This recipe needs a calcium supplement if not feeding raw meaty bones. Otherwise it’s too high in phosphorus and too low in calcium. 1/2 tsp of powdered eggshell per pound of food will be enough.
