My Little Dog,
A Heartbeat at my Feet
Dear Dr. Zira
|Tubby and Dr. Z last summer|
she loved her nosh. Unlike most dogs she wasn't too crazy about walks, pets, or toys, but food oh my, yes. Z would bat us with her paw and make a sort of purring noise while we ate to get some of our food. The day before she passed she pulled this routine on our vet and managed to get a portion of her turkey sandwich. In her memory made these little meat loafs this weekend, her brothers and sister where happy to eat her portion in tribute.
Heart Beet Cakes
- 1 1lb ground turkey
- 1 cups cooked Quinona, thanks Kolchak for giving me the idea to use Quinona in this awesome post
- 1/2 purple cabbage, diced very fine in the food processor
- 1 cup oven roasted beets, diced
- 2 beaten eggs
Preheat the oven to 350. Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl. Spoon into pans, I used a little heart pan, but a loaf pan or muffin tin would work too and bake for 45 minutes to an hour.
These tasty cakes are grain free thanks to the wonder of Quinona, a seed similar to leafy green veggies that can stand in for grains. Combine with the other healthy ingredients this makes a tasty and heart healthy kibble topper.
