beef marrow bones (or chicken or turkey parts) 3 potatoes (more if desired) OR 2 cups rice or barley (pre- cooked, more if desired) 4 (or more each) vegetables, from the following list: carrots kale beets green beans zucchini yellow squash broccoli parsley 2 cloves garlic, optional** 2 tablespoons olive oil (more if desired) water
Cut the vegetables into chunk sized pieces. Put all ingredients into a crockpot, fill 3/4 full with water. Cook on low heat for 4-8 hours.
Once cooked, remove all contents except bones to a blender. Take the marrowbones (remove all other bones as well) and remove the marrow into the mixture in the blender.
Blend all ingredients together until thick. Discard all bones.
Pour the stew mixture into daily-sized containers or plastic bags. Can be frozen for later use.
**use just 2 cloves when first introducing garlic to your dog's system, build up to more once they are accustomed to it
Is it safe to put garlic in our pet's food? I have been recently reading that it is poisonous to dogs.
CDKitchen Note: Always consult with your vet before feeding your dog human food. That said, my vet has confirmed that garlic in small amounts on a non-regular basis is fine for dogs. It is, however, toxic to cats.

It would be nice to know the quantities of the vegetables in this recipe.
