OUR SUPERSPROUTS RECIPE IS POSSIBLY ONE OF THE MOST NUTRITIOUS FAMILY RECIPE FOR YOUR DOG WITH FRESHLY SPROUTED ALFALFA AND LENTILS!
Most legumes that are used as a protein source in plant-based diets such as chickpeas and lentils contain a high amount of phytic acid that inhibits the absorption of valuable vitamins, iron and calcium from the intestine. To reduce the levels of phytic acid when lentils are eaten, it is very important to soak them; eat fermented legumes such a tofu which is fermented soya, or ideally sprout the lentils easily on your window sill.
All of these methods aim for an environment to allow the maximum absorption of these important nutrients from your dog’s large intestine as dogs have a shorter intestinal tract than us.

- Frozen green peas
- Chopped sweet potato (no skin), chopped pear (with skin no pips) and asparagus

- Rinse and chop sprouted lentils and sprouted alfalfa
- Weigh dry amount of quinoa and rinse well

Nutrient rich icing:
- Cut the tip off the algae capsule and squeeze out the contents, or use Norsan Omega 3 Algae oil from a bottle

Defrost overnight to feed in the morning to your dog.
If cooking large quantities
If you are cooking for a large dog or a number of dogs, it is advisable to omit the baking of the food in the recipe shown above to make it easier for you. This means that you will be feeding the food once it has been boiled and blended or mashed together.
As dogs do not like the consistency of mashed food (similar to the consistency of mushy peas), to make it more palatable, we advise adding in AGAR AGAR powder that gives the food a slimy consistency, like tinned dog food. It is a healthy addition as it is fibre and adds to the essential gut microflora. It is made up by mixing 15g powder per 1kg cooked food that is boiled and allowed to cool and can then be mixed into the food. The nutrient rich ‘icing’ can then be added to the top of the food, or also mixed in, but ensure that the food is cold when added to retain vital nutrients.
