One of the hardest parts of being a new vegan (or even an old seasoned vegan) is trying to keep up with all the new products out there. I must have spent over $50 looking for the "right" vegan cheese my first year being a vegan and I have over 50 vegan/vegetarian cookbooks in my arsenal but not all the recipes are the greatest. I’m the first born so I’m used to being a Guinea Pig and now I’m your Vegan Guinea Pig. So here are my recommendations and critiques. Let me know what you think!

Vegan Mofo: Sweet Potato & Carrot Mini-Pies for Dogs

No one said that Vegan Mofo had to only be about vegan food for people. My companion animals (Brit, Tyler, Piedmont and Brodie) love all things vegan. They can't get enough of shelled edamame, brown rice, zucchini, kale, broccoli, sliced apples (no seeds they are toxic), peas, cucumbers, sweet potatoes, carrots and just about anything else you can think of.

I thought I would mix two of my dogs favorite foods into delicious mini-pies as an early autumn treat. Needless to say they gobbled them up with lighting speed and now every time I reach into the refrigerator they get excited.

I'm currently working on a zine of Vegan Dog Food and treats that will be out within the next couple months so hold tight for a recipe soon.

  1. Hi Alicia,

    These look delicious! Can people eat them too, or is there something in them that makes them dog-only?

  2. That is awesome. I've been wanting to make dog treats for awhile. Do your dogs like dehydrated sweet potatoes b/c mine can't get enough?

  3. Hey Zoey, the are compltely people friendly. I actually modeled them after my sweet potato pies. The recipe makes 5 pies so I nibbled on one of them and gave the other 4 to the pups.

  4. Mo, I hadn't even thought about the possibilities with dehydrated sweet potatoes or other veggies. Those are next on the list of treats.

  5. that's so nice. My dog loves some of my baked yams. He would love your pies.

  6. btw, had to add that I always try out my dogs treats (vegan of course). they mostly taste like cardboard to me, but he loves them.

    I can't bring myself to try his vegan dog food. too stinky.
