Pumpkin Pea Bowl with Herb Millet

Pumpkin is a good idea!

1 daily serving for a 15kg dog (33 lb)

This bowl is not only quick to make, but also packed with nutrients. Pumpkin is not without reason very popular, both in taste and with the high amount of vitamin A, or beta-carotene, and rich in potassium, the berry fruit. Yes, that's right: the pumpkin is one of the largest berries in the world. Together with millet, which provides a lot of magnesium and iron and is considered easy to digest, the duo is a nutrient bomb. The shelled peas add essential proteins and the sesame oil provides fatty acids, which are crucial for the absorption of fat-soluble components. Cilantro, like many herbs, also contains a lot of great properties, such as active ingredients that can help against nausea, flatulence and diarrhoea. And as always, do not use too much herbs and spices and chop everything finely.


  • 510g cooked peeled Peas
  • 250g cooked Millet
  • 200g cooked Pumpkin
  • 15g Sesame Oil
  • 0,5g Salt
  • 6g V-Complete - 2g per 5kg Dog
  • some Cilantro (not during pregnancy)
  • 1⁄2 tsp Cardamom (do not use if pregnant as it can induce labour)
  • optional: some sesame seeds and chopped pumpkin seeds as topping


  1. If the shelled peas are not self-cooked, mash them into a puree beforehand. If the shelled peas are cooked yourself, it is best to cook them until they break down into a kind of puree by themselves.
  2. Puree the cooked millet with V-Complete and cilantro.
  3. Then add the sesame oil to the cooked pumpkin and mash with a fork.
  4. Add the cardamom to the mashed pumpkin and mix well.
  5. Now arrange everything in a bowl and season with salt.
  6. Optional: top with sesame seeds and chopped pumpkin seeds.

Then serve to your doggie.
