lab spinach dog food recipe

With the new beautiful weather shining all weekend it got me thinking of all those wonderful BBQ days last summer. Beef, lamb, chicken, oh my…it’s dog heaven. To a dog’s nose the garden never smells so good, than when the BBQ is being fired up, we know good and tasty things are about to happen and its very exciting cooking and eating outdoors.

So while I was pawing around my recipe book, I found this little Mediterranean dog food recipe that my peep would grill right on the BBQ for me, mixed with a tasty spinach puree and my favorite beans. It’s simple and healthy to make, and it’s a perfect way to share your Barbequing time with your best furry mate.

Dogs can eat kidney beans (cannellini) without them causing any health problems. In fact, beans are good for dogs, providing them with proteins that are different from what they get in their own food. Most beans, like kidney beans are fine for dogs to eat.
