  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup plain, unsweetened Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Prepare the vegetables:
  • In a pot, bring water to a boil and blanch the diced sweet potatoes for 2-3 minutes until slightly tender. Drain and set aside.
  • In the same pot, blanch the chopped carrots and green beans for 2 minutes, then add the frozen peas for an additional minute. Drain and set aside.
  1. Cook the ground turkey:
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the ground turkey until browned and cooked through. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and set aside.
  1. Layer the casserole:
  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked ground turkey, blanched sweet potatoes, carrots, green beans, and peas.
  • Stir in the chopped fresh parsley, dried rosemary, and turmeric powder for added flavor and health benefits.
  • Drizzle the coconut oil or olive oil over the mixture and gently toss to coat the ingredients evenly.
  1. Add the liquid:
  • In a separate bowl, mix the low-sodium chicken broth with water.
  • Pour the liquid mixture over the casserole ingredients, ensuring it is evenly distributed.
  1. Bake the casserole:
  • Lightly grease a 9×13-inch baking dish and transfer the casserole mixture into it.
  • If desired, drizzle honey over the top of the casserole for a touch of sweetness (optional).
  • Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  1. Add the finishing touch:
  • Remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 15-20 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are tender and the top is golden brown.
  • For the last 5 minutes of baking, add small dollops of plain, unsweetened Greek yogurt across the top of the casserole for a creamy and tangy finish.
  1. Serve and enjoy:
  • Let the casserole cool slightly before serving to your dog and yourself.
  • Cut human-sized portions for yourself, and serve the dog-sized portions to your furry friend in their food bowl.
  • You can serve this meal as a standalone dish or with a side salad for humans, adding extra veggies to complement the casserole.

Feeding Guidelines:

  • For dogs, serve an appropriate portion based on their size, age, weight, and activity level. Consult your veterinarian for accurate portion recommendations.
  • For humans, serve portions according to individual appetites and preferences.
