About this Recipe

Vegan diets have had a lot of press recently, whether you’ve been vegan since childhood, recently converted or flex when and how often you eat meat. The news is, eating a more plant based diet has benefits for us and the planet!

If you read my recent blog on Vegan Dogs you’ll know some are choosing to introduce a more plant based lifestyle to their canine friends also.

So with that in mind, and inspired by vegan week on GBBO. I wanted to have a go at a Vegan recipe. This includes Lentils and Quinoa for protein plus a healthy dose of Flaxseed oil for Omega 3  Рwhich tends to come from meat and fish normally. If you are worried your dog may not go for it, Its also got a healthy amount of Peanut Butter in it to entice them.



  • 75g Brown rice rinsed and drained
  • 75g Puy Lentils
  • 75g Quinoa
  • 1 large Sweet Potato
  • 200g Peanut Butter
  • Optional 1/4 Red Cabbage (I threw this in as needed to use it up)
  • 100ml Apple cider vinegar
  • 4-6 tbsp Flaxseed oil (Store in the fridge)

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Fill a large saucepan 3/4’s full with cold water and bring to the boil

Step 2

Meanwhile peel and chop the sweet potato and finely shred the red cabbage

Step 3

Add the rice, lentils, quinoa and sweet potato to the boiling water and simmer for 40 mins until fully coked

Step 4

Once fully cooked, drain any excess water out of the pan and using a potato masher or fork, mash together, adding in the peanut butter, apple cider vinegar and red cabbage (if using)

Step 5

Cool completely before serving. I placed half in Tupperware and froze

Step 6

Before serving, add in one tbsp of flaxseed to each serving
