2 cups garbanzo bean flour (easily made by grinding up dried chick peas, an excellent source of protein)
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 C frozen peas (thawed)
2 tablespoons tomato paste
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Puree the carrots, peas, turmeric, spinach, tomato paste and water in a food processor. Add the flour, baking powder, basil and oregano, and pulse until blended. Coat an 8 by 10 inch pan with non-stick cooking spray and then lightly dust with regular flour. Place the dough in the pan, spread it out evenly and score into about 60 square pieces. Bake 30 minutes. Makes 5 dozen treats (11 calories per treat).
PUMPKIN ICE BITES FOR DOGS
Want your dog to have a delicious and safe holiday treat? Here’s a simple recipe you can make at home:
Blend 1 cup of canned pumpkin with 1 cup of plain non-fat yogurt and freeze in an ice tray. Dogs can be given these one cube at a time (outside, because they can be a little messy for carpet!).
This mixture can also be stuffed into a Kong or rubber stuffable toy and frozen. That will allow hours of dog entertainment!
