Vegan Dog Food Recipe: Chomping Chow

Vegan Dog Food Recipe: Chomping Chow

At first, you might not think of dog food when you hear of ingredients like mint, parsley and coconut oil but that is exactly what we have here. A nutritious meal that gives a breath refreshing mouthful in every bite. This recipe packs a punch with nutrition and natural breath-freshening elements. Let's unpack this recipe to understand why the ingredients selected will be good to incorporate into your dogs next meal.

Firstly, the new kid on the block - Buckwheat: what is buckwheat? My dog is gluten intolerant! Hold your leashes! Buckwheat isn’t wheat at all, it is a seed! Buckwheat is a wonderfully nutritious food for your dog with lots of fibre, lots of protein, low on the glycemic index and contains: 

  • Manganese
  • Magnesium
  • Potassium
  • B-vitamins
  • antioxidants

Regularly seen as a synthetic additive in store-bought dog munchies, but consider fresh Mint leaves: which are a great, natural breath freshener.

A favourite garnish of chefs past and present Parsley: plays a bigger role here and is high in chlorophyll, which aids in neutralising odour. 

A health food gurus pantry favourite Augustine’s Approved Raw Coconut Oil: aids in digestion, boosting immunity, increasing energy, promoting lean body weight and can help in the fight against doggy breath by combating bacteria in their mouth.

A rising agent that will elevate your dog's breath, Bicarbonate of Soda: assists in the neutralising of acids in the mouth, in turn, helping to freshen breath.

There we have it, a quick rundown on some of the simple, everyday ingredients in this yummy bowl of Chomping Chow. Don’t forget to balance this meal with your pooch’s favourite plant-based kibble to ensure they get everything they need to be a thriving dog.


Chomping Chow

A powerhouse of nutrition with breath-freshening ingredients in every bite.

No one likes doggy breath but sometimes it is just a part of life. With bicarb soda, parsley, mint and even coconut oil your pooch will enjoy a breath refreshing meal. Give this Chomping Chow a try with one of your pooch's’ favourite kibbles to ensure a well-balanced diet.



  1. Start by adding the 2 cups of water to 1 cup of uncooked buckwheat groats and bring to a boil. 
  2. Reduce to a simmer and cover. Simmer until buckwheat is tender approximately 20-30 minutes. 
  3. Rinse, drain and set aside to cool.
  4. Combine cooled buckwheat with the remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix well. 

Store leftovers in sealed containers and refrigerate for about 3-5 days or freeze for up to 6 months. 

Note: This is not complete dog food, to ensure your dog is eating a well-balanced diet we recommend using a complete and balanced kibble as their main source of food.
