The Eco Mum Homemade Dog Food Recipe
Made with lean beef mince, brown rice and dandelion root, your pup will be licking his chops for homemade dog food made by The Eco Mom, Louise. Delicious and homemade, this is an easy DIY recipe to make in your own kitchen.
Step 1. Place all ingredients into a food processor and pulse until well mixed. You may have to do this in several batches.
Step 2. Freeze in week sized portions to avoid it going rancid before use. We give Brutus about 1 - 1 1/2 cups each night for dinner.

This recipe will last about 1 month for one large dog. I like to make a big batch so I only have to make it monthly. It’s a bit of a project so set aside a morning or an afternoon to do this. If you do not have enough bread pans or don’t have the freezer room, you can cut the recipe in half or even quarter it. I use two large bread bowls for mixing.
In a big container or 2 large bread bowls, combine:
10# raw hamburger
12 c pureed, cooked beans (I usually use pinto or red beans)
1 dozen eggs
2c wheat germ
4c rolled oats (finely chopped in a food processor)
8c cooked brown rice, cooked millet, or cooked and mashed potatoes
8c liquid (either water, milk, yogurt, whey, or stock – can be a mixture)
4c cooked pureed vegetables (preferably squash, pumpkin, or grated carrots)
6 T. garlic powder (acts as a natural internal parasite deterrent)
1 T. salt substitute – such as ‘No Salt’ (potassium chloride – a needed form of potassium)
12 T. egg shell powder – a necessary source of calcium(I save my egg shells by rinsing them out immediately and letting them dry on a baking sheet with sides. When I have saved a large amount, I grind them into a powder in my coffee grinder.)
6 T. kelp granules and any other desired supplements
Pre-cook beans and rice, millet, or potatoes, and the vegetables ahead of time. I like to work on this the week before I’m ready to make the recipe and just put them in the freezer until it’s time (except potatoes which do not freeze well.)
Mix all ingredients with hands in two large bowls or a large container.
Divide mixture evenly into 12 bread pans.
Bake at 350° for 1 hour.
Let cool completely. Remove from pan and cut into desired serving size slices.
Place individual servings in Ziploc sandwich bags and pack as many as will fit neatly into gallon Ziplocs for storing easily in your freezer.
