Slow Cooker turkey, kale, carrots, broccoli and brown rice

Slow Cooker turkey, kale, carrots, broccoli and brown rice

This recipe was really easy and the dogs absolutely loved it!  It takes 4 hours in a 6-8 quart crock pot on high. Make sure you cut the carrots in to small pieces so they will be done after 4 hours. You may need to give a little more time for larger pieces. This recipe was perfectly done and the vegetables did not get overcooked. I usually add 4 ounces of blueberries to this recipe if I have them, but not today! If I do add them I wait until the recipe is done and mix them in well so the skins burst and soften to release all the nutrients inside. 


  • 3 pounds ground turkey (I used organic 93% from Costco)
  • 2 TBSP coconut oil
  • 12 ounces carrots diced in to bite sized pieces
  • 12 ounces of a 50:50 mixture of kale and broccoli diced in to small pieces
  • 1 ¾ cup uncooked brown rice
  • 3 cups bone broth or water (avoid onions and garlic)
  • 30 grams (3 level tablespoons of premix)
  • 2 teaspoons Holistic Vet Blend Icelandic Omega-3 fish oil

Preparation Instructions

This recipe was prepared in a 6 quart crock pot

  1. Add the coconut oil to the bottom of the crock pot.
  2. Add the brown rice and 2 cups broth or water (reserve 1 cup to be added with the greens later) and the diced carrots. 
  3. Layer the ground turkey over the brown rice and flatten. 
  4. Cook on high for 2 ½ hours.  Break up the meat with a wooden spoon or spatula and mix the ingredients.
  5. Add the kale and broccoli over top and pour in another cup of bone broth or water and cook on high for another 1 ½ hours (a little longer if the carrots are not soft).
  6. After 4 hours mix the recipe and allow it to cool. Add the premix and Omega-3 fish oil. Refrigerate enough to feed for 4 days and freeze the rest.
