Dog Food Recipe: Spinach, Rice and Turkey

healthy dog foodSpinach, Rice, and Turkey Dog Food Recipe is easy to make and super delicious. Making your own dog food is a great alternative to buying store bought food. Plus you get the benefit of controlling all the nutrition in the food and using healthy ingredients. Also, making your own dog food is easy and can be more cost effective than buying dog food.

It is a good idea to talk to your Los Lunas veterinarian about what nutritional ratios you should put in your dog food. Every dog is a little different, and depending on weight and health issues, your vet may make different recommendations for different dogs.

Spinach, Rice, and Turkey Dog Food Recipe


  • 1 1/2 cups brown rice (brown rice is healthier than white)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 pounds ground turkey
  • 3 cups chopped baby spinach
  • 2 shredded carrots
  • 1 shredded zucchini
  • 1/2 cup peas, canned or frozen peas are fine.


  1. Cook your rice according to directions, either on the stove or in a rice cooker. Then set it aside.
  2. Shred your carrots and zucchini, and chop your spinach. Often you can buy shredded zucchini and carrots at the store. If shredding is too difficult, you can mince it into small pieces.
  3. Heat olive oil in a dutch oven or large pot.
  4. Add ground turkey and cook the turkey until browned. They takes about 3-5 minutes. Make sure to break up the turkey while cooking so it is crumbled into small pieces.
  5. Stir in spinach, carrots, zucchini, peas and brown rice until the spinach has wilted, so roughly 3-5 minutes.
  6. Let it cool.

You can freeze some of the food and keep it up to a week.
