Maximo's Mush
Author: Gay Van Beek ~ Canterbury Cottage Designs
  • 2-3 Sweet potatoes skin on, sliced lengthwise
  • 2-3 Zucchinis or Yellow Squash skin on, ends removed, sliced into 2 inch chunks
  • 6-8 Carrots skin on, sliced in half or thirds
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter Max loves creamy
  • 1 can peas drained
  1. For the Insta Pot:
  2. Place an inch of water in the bottom, add potatoes, zucchinis and carrots. Set to high pressure for 20 minutes, then release steam. Set aside.
For the Microwave:
  1. Add potatoes, zucchinis and carrots to a microwave safe glass bowl with about 2 inches of water in the bottom. Cover and microwave on high for 10-20 minutes, until ingredients are very soft.
  1. Remove cooled vegetables to your kitchen counter, a cutting board or a very large bowl. There will be a lot of water from the zucchinis but that is okay. Add  peanut butter and peas. Chop until a fine mush has formed.
Recipe Notes

This makes enough food for two weeks for my 20lb dog and freezes nicely. I keep half in the fridge and the other half in the freezer.
