Frozen carrots for dogs

If you buy frozen carrots for your dog they will need to be thawed before they are given.

How to thaw them

A microwave thaw method is good to use. Start by thawing a little bit of the carrot then use this as a guide and thaw the rest.

Do not use a fridge as it is not best for the carrots. Also do not place in the microwave on full power for too long as this will cause the carrots to become hot which may cause the skin to become damaged.

It may take a couple of minutes for the carrots to thaw. During this time the dog may not want to eat them but will eventually. Once thawed place them in a bowl to give the dog time to take a snack or a meal.

How to cook them

It is recommended that you cook your dogs frozen carrots in the microwave. If you try to boil them they may become mushy and soggy which can cause your dog to choke. The same can happen if you bake them.

To microwave they need to be placed in a microwaveable dish. You can leave the skin on the carrot. This is not recommended though as you are just making them more time consuming to cook. They should be put in on full power for one to two minutes. For longer times you should lower the microwave to half power. If you leave them in the microwave too long they can become soggy and mushy.

In addition to microwaving they can be cooked on the stove top. Place them in a pan and fill the pan with hot water. Put a lid on the pan. Heat the carrots on a medium heat for approximately two to three minutes.

When you do this it is important that the pan is not empty and that the carrots are not sitting on top of each other. Once you take the lid off stir the carrots to help them cook evenly. They will continue to cook and the temperature can vary slightly between the various sections of the carrot.

To make sure they are done place a toothpick or fork in a single piece of the carrot. The toothpick should slide in easily with the slightest pressure. At this point you can test them to see if they are done or if they still need a little more cooking time. They are done when you can pull the toothpick in and out without any resistance.

It is best if you do this with the back of the knife you are using to cook the carrots with. If you use a knife from the edge and you press on them with the teeth while using the knife they will be sliced in half or completely torn. You should only use the back of the knife to test the carrots. Do not use a knife that you use to slice the carrots with.

To ensure they are not burned place the lid back on the pan and leave the carrots in the oven for a few minutes to help cool down a little before you transfer them to a serving dish.

You can make this healthier by using a vegetable stock instead of water. You can also use almond milk instead of water and add a little lemon juice and other ingredients to the mix.

If you want a sweeter carrot dish you can add maple syrup to the mix or a honey instead of water. Honey will definitely not be as sweet and can be used if you don't want to use water. I think the water works really well because it adds a bit of extra fiber to the carrots which is good for the digestion. It is also easier to digest. You can also use plain Greek yogurt and add a little ginger or other spices you like.

Carrots are super easy to prepare and are delicious when you make them into a soup. They are good for your digestion so it is always a good idea to consume carrots as well as broccoli, cabbage, and the other cruciferous vegetables. Carrots also help you get a healthy glow so it is always a good idea to eat them every day to benefit your beauty!

I have a few different recipes for you to try for today. Today's recipe is a quick chicken and quinoa stew.

In the pot I have included a chicken fillet, celery and bell pepper to provide some of the vegetables.

I have added some broccoli, red cabbage and kale, and then added the quinoa to the soup to add some carbs and protein to this dish.

You can use any vegetables you like in this dish. Make it as healthy or as sweet as you like. You can use your favorite seasoning in the chicken and quinoa to make this dish as flavorful as you like. It is also a very versatile dish.

If you want it a bit thicker you can use an extra 2 cups of broth. The broth I used is a chicken broth that I bought at the store. You can use vegetable stock instead. You can also use a can of tuna instead of chicken. If you want to make this dish a bit heartier add a can of white beans. If you want it more colorful you can add some rainbow carrots and broccoli. Whatever you like.

It is also a good dish for company because you can quickly and easily prepare it. The preparation is just 10-15 minutes. It is also a pretty inexpensive meal if you buy the ingredients at the store.

So get cooking and enjoy! This is a great meal to enjoy during your lunch break or dinner hour. I hope you try this recipe and enjoy it!
