Recipe of the Week: Wholesome Veggie & Lentil Delight for Humans and Pups


Recipe: Wholesome Veggie and lentil Delight for Humans and Pups


  • 1 cup lentils (green or red), rinsed
  • 2 cups mixed vegetables (carrots, peas, sweet potatoes, and spinach), chopped
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 4 cups vegetable broth (low-sodium)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric (for its anti-inflammatory benefits)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 2-3 cups water (for cooking)
  • Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Prepare Lentils:
    • In a large pot, combine the rinsed lentils with 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until lentils are tender but not mushy (about 15-20 minutes for red lentils, or 25-30 minutes for green lentils). Drain any excess water.
  2. Cook Vegetables:
    • In another pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the mixed vegetables and sauté for about 5 minutes until slightly softened.
  3. Combine Lentils and Vegetables:
    • Add the cooked lentils to the pot with sautéed vegetables. Mix well.
  4. Add Oats and Broth:
    • Stir in the rolled oats, vegetable broth, turmeric, black pepper, cumin, and coriander. Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer.
  5. Cook and Simmer:
    • Cover the pot and let the mixture simmer for about 15-20 minutes, or until the oats are cooked and the vegetables are tender. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking. If the mixture becomes too thick, you can add more water.
  6. Cool and Serve:
    • Allow the mixture to cool before serving. For humans, you can season with a bit of salt and additional spices if desired.
  7. For Your Pup:
    • Once the mixture has cooled, set aside a portion for your dog before seasoning. Ensure that the food is at room temperature before serving it to your furry friend.
  8. Garnish and Enjoy:
    • For humans, garnish with fresh parsley if desired. Serve the wholesome Veggie & Lentil Delight to both you and your pup, and enjoy a nourishing meal together!

Note: Always check with your veterinarian before introducing new foods to your dog’s diet, especially if they have any dietary restrictions or health concerns. Make sure that the recipe is suitable for your dog’s individual needs and preferences.

!!! ATTENTION !!! Remember that every dog’s tolerance to spices and herbs AND EVEN VEGGIES can vary, and some dogs may be more sensitive than others. If you’re introducing black pepper, turmeric, or other spices and herbs to your dog’s diet, or certain vegetables, start with a very small amount and observe how your dog reacts, and do not use high quantities. Do not use it if your dog has gastrointestinal sensitivity, also, if he is healthy those spices can create gastrointestinal problems, please be aware, use very rare, and in very small quantities, or DO NOT USE AT ALL! If you have any concerns or questions, it’s always a good idea to consult your veterinarian before making any changes to your dog’s diet.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
