Winter squash, green bean & apple puree

I have used up all of the beef liver vegetable puree that I mentioned in my last two posts so today I made a new one…plus some of the vegetables in my fridge needed to be eaten ASAP. I still have some of the old puree in the freezer but as I mentioned I needed to use up some of the stuff in my fridge.

This time I didn’t use the liver. Partly because I hadn’t defrosted any of the liver I had in the freezer and partly because I didn’t want to deal with any raw meat at the moment.

Today my puree had:

  • 1/2 a baked spaghetti squash
  • Roughly 16 oz Raw Eat Smart butternut squash
  • 2 tsp Kirkland Signature minced California garlic

  • 4 fresh garlic cloves
  • Trader Joe’s roasted seaweed snack

  • 2 Tbsp Bob’s Red Mill Organic 100% Whole Ground Golden Flaxseed Meal
  • 12 oz Bird’s Eye Steamfresh cut green beans
  • 1/2 honey crisp apple

I started with some spaghetti squash I cooked for my own meal a few days earlier. I then added some raw cubed butternut squash I bought from Costco.IMAG0642

 

I added about 2 teaspoons of minced garlic also from Costco then noticed I had some fresh garlic that needed to be eaten so I put 4 cloves of fresh garlic in the food processor.

All the while I was steaming a bag of green beans in the microwave.

While the green beans were cooking I crumbled some seaweed into the squash and garlic mixture followed by about 2 tablespoons of ground golden flax seed meal. The jury is still out on flax seed. I am not sure at the moment if dogs actually absorb any of the nutrients from flax seed or if it just acts as extra fiber.

I then added the green beans and half of a honey crisp apple.

I set that to puree and put some of it into small Tupperware containers in the freezer. The rest I put in an airtight container in the fridge for my dog’s meals this week. All the dogs loved it!
