The true Canadian winter cold has really been setting in lately, and us humans often employ delicious meals such as soup and stew to warm us up in the evening. However, many dog owners don't consider just how much the cold impacts our canine friends - many dogs sleep more in winter, and don't get to enjoy nearly as much time outdoors. If you're looking to give your pup a little extra warmth during these frigid months, consider making him or her a batch of delicious liver soup, which can be served over kibble or alone in small portions.
- 1 lb raw beef liver
- 5 cups water
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- 1/2 tsp salt (optional)
Place the raw beef liver in the freezer for a short period of time, as this will make cutting it much easier. Once it is slightly frozen, pour 5 cups of water into a pot and slice the liver into thin, 1/2 inch pieces while it comes to a boil. Once the water comes to a rolling boil, add the sliced liver, 1/2 tsp of salt, if desired, and 1 tsp of minced garlic. Reduce the heat and allow the mixture to simmer until the liver is thoroughly cooked, and a grey-brown shade. Remove the liver soup from the heat and puree in a food processor, if desired. Serve this tasty winter soup to your favourite canine over his dinner on a cold, icy night, or alone, in a small portion, as a treat.
