GROUND TURKEY, QUINOA, AND CARROTS MAKES 4 SERVINGS
Quinoa is one of my favorite carbs to make for my dogs. They love it, and I can make a lot at once because it lasts for several days. With four dogs, it’s hard to have any leftovers, but quinoa is very easy to buy, make, and store in bulk. For added variety I also cook red quinoa and tricolor quinoa.
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 pounds ground turkey
“1 cup uncooked quinoa
1/4 cup chopped carrot
1In a large sauté pan, heat the oil over medium-low heat. Add the turkey and cook until it is browned. Drain any excess fat and set it aside to cool.
2 Cook the quinoa as directed on the package and set it aside to cool. You should have about 2 cups of cooked quinoa.
3 Puree the carrot in a food processor. You should have about 1/4 cup of carrot puree.
TO MAKE ONE SERVING
1 1/3 cups cooked turkey
1/2 cup cooked quinoa
1 tablespoon pureed carrots
In your dog’s bowl, combine the turkey, quinoa, and carrot puree and mix well to combine.
