KAMUT, BEAN & ALMOND VEGGIE POT – dog food
Another one of Lilly Belle’s favorite dishes. What can I say? She loves my cooking! Blackeye peas have a meaty texture that I haven’t found in any other bean or legume. The Kamut flakes also add a chewy texture that she likes! And of course she loves her veggies – green beans with everything is how she’d prefer it!
