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!
If you’re still feeding your dog commercial dog food, we would suggest using this meal as a dressing or topping by combining the two over the course of three or four days. Reduce your dog’s other food accordingly so as to avoid unhealthy weight gain.
This recipe would be just as nourishing for you and your family. Yes, we’ve tried it! If you don’t fancy the heart and liver 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.
- 1kg (2lb 3oz) Lamb minced
- 100g (3 ½oz) Lamb Heart diced
- 50g (1 ¾oz) Lamb Liver diced
- 191g (6 ¾oz) Sweet Potatoes unpeeled, finely diced
- 173g (6oz) Carrots skin on, unpeeled, finely diced
- 134g (4 ¾oz) Green Beans finely diced
- 134g (4 ¾oz) Kale finely chopped (include stalks)
- 115g (4oz) Cauliflower finely chopped (include stalks)
- 20g (¾oz) Blueberries halved
- 1g (small pinch) Himalayan Rose Pink Salt
- 8g (2 heaped tablespoons) Lamb Herb Blend
- 10g (2 level teaspoons) Eggshell Powder
- 70ml (3 tablespoons) Safflower Oil
- 70ml (3 tablespoons) Salmon Oil
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. Add vegetables to pan, longest cooking times first – sweet potato, cauliflower and green beans. When cooked, turn off heat and add the kale and blueberries. After about 5 minutes, add Eggshell Powder, salt, salmon oil and safflower Oil to vegetables and then blend all the ingredients together. Allow to cool before apportioning and/or serving. Either freeze what you don’t immediately need or keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.
