For the past year I've bee feeding my 2 guys brown rice, lentils, some oil, and a daily multi-vitamin. They really like their food and gobble it up. In fact, they're quite the garbage disposals and will eat and enjoy most fruits and veggies. It's so easy to make up a large batch and much cheaper than bagged stuff.

Has anyone else tried this? What's your recipe?

I feed my dogs a vegan homemade diet. But I try and vary it as much as I can. I use the Honest Kitchen's 'Preference' as a base - then I add a choice of lentils, quinoa, beans, tofu, tempeh, seitan, brown rice, or whole wheat pasta and a mix of veggies.

It has only been about 3 months. THey are doing very well on it tho

You may be interested in this: The Simple Little Vegan Dog Book.
It's a cookbook filled with recipes for vegan dog food. And it contains info about dog nutrition.

Winkie eats homemade dog biskits, about 4 a day. They're a big part of her diet.

3 cups oats
1 cup flour
1 cup unsalted ground peanuts
1 cup applesauce
2 mashed bananas
A spoonful of vanilla
A dash of cinnamon for variety

Mix.

Bake like cookies @ 350-degrees for 1/2 hour.

Keep refrigerated.

Anyone making homemade dog food should research recipes made just for dogs. Dogs have different nutritonal needs than humans.
