Vegan Dog Food Recipe #4

This recipe comes from Halo, Purely for Pets. They manufacture non-veg dog food, but this recipe happened to be vegan. You may even want to share this with your dog, if she'll let you!

Yield: About 8 Cups

1/2 cup brown rice
1/2 cup celery, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup carrots, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup acorn squash (or yellow squash), coarsely chopped
1/2 cup zucchini, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup tofu
1/2 cup portabella mushrooms, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon tamari (or natural soy sauce)
Dash of oregano
Dash of rosemary
4 to 6 cups spring water

Combine all the ingredients in a stainless steel pot with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil then lower the heat, cover, and simmer for 1 hour, or until the rice is tender. Remove from the heat and let cool. Serve at room temperature topped with one or all of the following condiments: a sprig of parsley, 1 teaspoon crushed garlic, and/or 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger. Using ziplock bags or plastic containers, make up meal-sized portions and freeze whatever you won't use within 3 or 4 days.

*Remember to rotate recipes frequently! (Are you sick of me saying that yet?)
