Happy Wednesday! I know, Friday would be better and it’s getting closer. I have been trying to mix up the variety of food we feed the pups so they get a variety of nutrients too. I’ve always been a fan of V-Dog Kibble and get regular shipments of it and V-Dog Wiggle Biscuits. I’ll rotate mixing in cooked lentils, chickpeas, even steamed veggies. But I’m trying vegan canned dog food now to mix in with the kiddle starting with Halo Vegan Adult Dog Food.
I like that it’s fortified with B12 and other vitamins and is in a pate form more like traditional dog food and Leela was an instant fan of it. Miko took a little longer to warm up to it, but likes it now.
They also love crunchy veggie snack sticks in their dinner. So far so good with the food, but they do seem to have, uh, impressive poops with the additional fiber – hehe.
I’m still in summer mode here craving cooler, colorful salads in the heat and I love dill for such a fresh summer flavor. This is an interesting, lighter summer dressing that celebrates dill with raw garlic and a little decadent tahini that will add a lot of flavor.
Tahini Dijon Dressing
- 2 tbsp. tahini
- 1 tbsp. dill paste
- 2 tbsp. dijon mustard
- 1 clove of garlic
- 2 tbsp. nutritional yeast
- 1 tbsp. miso paste
- ¼ cup water as needed
- salt and pepper to taste
Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend to a smooth and creamy texture. Serve and enjoy! Makes 2-4 servings.
The texture is a little lighter, but it’s loaded with kicky Dijon, dill, and garlic, a combo that always works for me.
And it still coats perfectly adding lively pop to these spinach leaves.
It’s bright and perfect for celebrating the dog days of summer.
