Lamb & Sweet Potato Hotpot
Grain & gluten free lamb recipe
Ideal for a dog with a sensitivity to chicken or beef, lamb is an excellent source of easily digestible protein, essential amino acids and dietary fats. Tasty!
Lamb makes a real change from chicken or beef. Rich in protein and omega-3 fatty acids, your dog will certainly benefit from the variety of nutrients lamb brings over other protein sources. This recipe also uses carrots, cauliflower, kale, green beens and blueberries dressed in salmon oil for omega-3 and 6, and safflower oil for vitamin E and yet more omega-6. And the best bit? You guessed it, as always, you can eat it too if you like!
- 1kg (2lb 3oz) Lamb minced
- 100g (3 ½oz) Lamb Heart diced
- 50g (1 ¾oz) Lamb Liver diced
- 191g (6 ¾oz) Sweet Potatoes finely diced
- 173g (6oz) Carrots skin on, finely diced
- 134g (4 ¾oz) Green Beans finely diced
- 134g (4 ¾oz) Kale finely chopped
- 115g (4oz) Cauliflower finely chopped
- 20g (¾oz) Blueberries halved
- 1g (small pinch) Himalayan Rose Pink Salt

- 70ml (3 tablespoons) Safflower Oil
- 70ml (3 tablespoons) Salmon Oil
Herb Blends for Dogs
Make your dog's homemade meals complete by adding one of our unique blends of 100% natural essential vitamins & minerals.
Add lamb mince to a pan with 285ml (½ pint) of water together with the Lamb Herb Blend. Cook on a low heat for approximately 5 minutes before adding heart and liver. Cook until the meat turns brown and any liquid is clear. Drain any liquid into the vegetable pan and set cooked meat aside.
If necessary, wash and then dice all vegetables. Do not peel. There is too much goodness in the skin and close to the surface of most vegetables to waste!
Add vegetables to pan, longest cooking times first. In this case add the sweet potato, cauliflower and green beans, and when cooked, turn off the heat and add the kale and blueberries.
After about 5 minutes, add Eggshell Powder, salt, salmon oil and safflower Oil to vegetables to make this recipe complete, and then blend all the ingredients together.
Allow mix to cool before apportioning and/or serving.

This recipe would be just as nourishing for you and your family as it would be for your dog. It’s so tasty (yes, we’ve tried it), that you shouldn’t even need any exta seasoning. Both lamb heart and lamb liver are extremely nutrient-rich, but if you don’t fancy those yourself, cook them separately and add them to your dog’s food just before apportioning. Do the same with the Eggshell Powder, safflower and salmon oil. That said, you could try the blend, and you could certainly try it with the safflower oil which aside from being good for you, has a fairly neutral flavour.
