Introducing Plant Get Enough, a plant-based feast consisting of freshly prepared veggies and pulses, just like a hearty casserole. Powered by plants, devoured by dogs.


Our customer feedback revealed that a significant number of people had a growing interest in reducing their environmental impact. As well as other ongoing initiatives, we decided that one way of supporting this interest was to produce a new recipe that would be our most sustainable yet.


Dogs are omnivores, not carnivores. Even their wolf ancestors would eat plants during a scavenge, as well as meat. Thousands of years of evolution mean that today’s domesticated dogs have a very adaptable digestive system, allowing them to survive (and thrive) on a variety of different foods.


We would always recommend incorporating variety into your dog’s diet. Many pup parents opt for Plant Get Enough alongside feeding some of our meat-based recipes, such as Chicken You Out and Pork This Way.


We also offer a vegetarian recipe, Ready Steady Veggie.

Recipe Ingredients

In all of our recipes, we only use human-grade ingredients that you can see and say. Our food is free from nasties, such as preservatives, additives and fillers.


We’ve listed every single ingredient in our Plant Get Enough recipe below, as well as the benefits that they unleash for our precious pooches.

Carrots

Packed with essential nutrients like vitamins A and C, carrots support overall well-being, promote dental health by reducing plaque, and contribute to good vision due to their beta-carotene content. This is especially important for finding those missing tennis balls in long grass. 


The fibre in carrots aids digestion, making them an excellent low-calorie, crunchy addition that satisfies while helping manage weight.

Butternut Squash

Bursting with vitamins A, C, and E, along with fibre and potassium, butternut squash supports overall well-being and aids digestion. 


This nutrient-rich squash contributes to a robust immune system, helps manage weight with its low-calorie and high-fibre composition, and promotes joint health through antioxidants like vitamin C.

Sweet Potatoes

The natural sugars in sweet potatoes provide a delicious flavour that dogs love. They serve as an excellent source of energy due to being complex carbohydrates, ideal for spirited dogs that are always active.

Parsnips

The natural antioxidants in parsnips support immune function, aiding in the defence against oxidative stress. With their low calorie value and low glycemic index, parsnips can be a suitable option for dogs managing their weight or those with diabetes.

Green Beans

Beans glorious beans. Green, lean and a favourite in the eyes of the Butternut Box team. Green beans are full of flavour and texture, as well as being the perfect fibre boost to help get things moving along smoothly.

Broccoli

These small but mighty trees sure do pack a punch when it comes to their nutrition profile. Brimming with vitamins C and K, as well as minerals such as potassium and folate, broccoli contributes to overall well-being. 


Not to mention, the vegetable's crunchiness provides a satisfying texture for dogs, making it a nutritious and enjoyable addition to their diet.

Cauliflower

Another of the small-but-mighty tree family, cauliflower is low in calories but high in nutrition. It contains lots of good things, including indole-3-carbinol and sulforaphane, which are renowned for their anti-inflammatory properties. Particularly helpful for dogs that may suffer with arthritis and joint inflammation.

Spinach

Rich in vitamins A, C, and K, along with essential minerals such as iron and calcium, spinach contributes to overall health. 


Its antioxidants, including beta-carotene and lutein, bolster the immune system and combat oxidative stress for long-term well-being. The lutein in spinach also promotes eye health, contributing to optimal vision. 


Just like Popeye, your pup will be strong to the finish if they eat their spinach. 

Pea Protein

Pea-licious. As a plant-based source of protein, peas offer a valuable alternative, supporting muscle maintenance and overall growth. Their high fibre content aids in digestive health by promoting regular bowel movements, making them especially beneficial for dogs with sensitive stomachs. 


Peas also provide essential vitamins such as A, C, and K, along with minerals like iron and potassium, contributing to a well-rounded nutritional profile.

Red Lentils

These legendary legumes are rich in plant-based protein, with vitamins and minerals such as iron, magnesium, and folate to support muscle maintenance and overall growth. 


With a notable fibre content, red lentils aid digestion and promote a healthy gut, contributing to regular bowel movements. As a steady source of energy from complex carbohydrates and their low fat content, red lentils are suitable for active dogs or those requiring weight management.

Potato Protein

As a plant-based protein source, potato protein provides a high-quality alternative for dogs with specific dietary requirements or sensitivities, boasting a complete amino acid profile for muscle maintenance and growth. 


Known for its digestibility, potato protein is suitable for dogs with sensitive stomachs. It contributes to the energy levels of active dogs, supporting overall vitality.

Ground Flaxseed & Flaxseed Oil

Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, particularly alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), flaxseed can enhance coat quality and can help to alleviate skin conditions, such as dryness or itchiness. Additionally, omega-3s play a role in cardiovascular health, ensuring proper circulation and a healthy heart. 


The anti-inflammatory properties of these fatty acids can contribute to joint health, making it beneficial for dogs with arthritis, as well as aid in managing allergies and inflammatory skin issues.

Cranberries

Rich in antioxidants and vitamins C, E, and K, cranberries support overall immune function and contribute to a healthy coat. These berries contain natural compounds that may help prevent urinary tract infections by stopping bacteria attaching to the urinary tract lining.

Brewer’s Yeast

Used in bread and beer production, brewer’s yeast is a nutrient powerhouse rich in B vitamins, particularly B-complex vitamins like B1, B2, B3, and B6, supporting various aspects of your dog's health including metabolism, skin, and coat. 


It is a natural source of protein and contains essential minerals such as selenium, aiding in overall well-being. It is also believed to act as a natural deterrent to fleas, due to its thiamine content.

Minerals

These vital nutrients, such as calcium, support strong bone and teeth development. Iron plays a crucial role in blood function, aiding in oxygen transport and supporting energy levels. 


Meanwhile zinc and copper act as cofactors for enzymes, facilitating biochemical reactions crucial for digestion and nutrient absorption. Manganese supports bone health, enzyme activation, connective tissue formation, antioxidant defence, and reproductive health in dogs.

Dried Thyme

Rich in antioxidants, thyme can help neutralise free radicals and, thanks to the presence of compounds like rosmarinic acid, can have anti-inflammatory effects. 


Known for its respiratory benefits, thyme might help alleviate mild respiratory issues in dogs. Additionally, thyme provides mild digestive support and has natural antibacterial properties that contribute to maintaining a healthy balance in the digestive system. 

Dried Parsley

Parsley's natural antioxidant properties may help combat free radicals in your dog's body. It also contains chlorophyll, which can contribute to fresher breath and support oral health. Parsley is known for its diuretic properties, promoting kidney function and potentially assisting in preventing urinary issues.
