Amber and Indy eat a very natural and usually raw diet. They eat over a week a mix of meals from Barf, Salmon & Steamed Pumpkin, Kangaroo, Raw Chicken Wings & Boiled Chicken with Steamed Sweet Potato.
Indy is VERY food focused, whilst Amber is certainly less so. Which is why I am always open to new natural meals I can make myself to include “A la carte”.
After a little google time searching for an easy recipe I came across a basic beauty that allowed room for personal additions or changes.
Since my dogs had never eaten cooked Kangaroo before, I was not sure what they would think. I decided to keep the recipe essentially the same (just doubling it) with the addition of Kale. If they loved it, next time I planned to include other fruit and vegetables such as apple, ground flax seed, pumpkin, bok choy, spinach and broccoli.
(Note: Indy is under 12 months so while he is still growing Kangaroo is a bit too lean for him to eat on a daily/regular basis. For Amber it is perfect in keeping her nice, healthy and trim.)
Thank you “Bodhi” and your mum from 1st World Dog for the recipe!
- 1kg Kangaroo Mince
- 2 Eggs
- 2-4 Carrots (Grated)
- 1-2 Cups Cooked Rice
- Bunch of Kale Leaves (chopped & lightly steamed in microwave)
- Pre-heat Oven (I had mine on 200 celcius for Fan Forced)
- Mix Rice, Carrot & Kale together in a mixing bowl
- Mix in Kangaroo mince
- Crack in eggs and fold together until well combined
- In a baking or loaf tray (line with baking paper to reduce clean up) spoon in your mince mixture and smooth out
- Bake in the oven for approx 20-30 mins
- Once cooked, allow to cool out of the oven
- Flip you’re Kanga-Loaf onto a chopping board
Amber and Indy are teeny tiny so I chopped it up into amuse-bouches (bit-sized hors d’œuvres) sized meals and popped them into the freezer until required.
