These tiny meatballs can be used as treats or pill pockets (they’re not a balanced meal).

They provide:

 lycopene (in tomato paste)for eye health

beta carotene, water-soluble flavanoids (in basil) orientin and vicenin that defend cell structures

glucoraphanin, a compound that is converted into a potent antioxidant called sulforaphane in broccoli

polyphenolic flavonoid compounds from butternut squash and pumpkin.


1️⃣Finely chop broccoli florets and basil.

2️⃣Steam and mash butternut squash or pulverise peeled, raw squash in food processor.

3️⃣Mix with ground turkey, tomato paste and canned pumpkin.

4️⃣Shape into tiny meat balls.


* Can be frozen in single layer on parchment-lined cookie sheet. Serve raw or lightly cooked, depending on your dog’s tolerance.
