This is an easy recipe to cook for your birds. Now that Beak Appetite have closed down, I wanted to make something similar for our birds, since they enjoy it so much. This is the first recipe I've tried, but they really enjoyed it, and it doesn't take long to make.
250g of Country Style Soup Mix (mine contained Adzuki beans, barley flakes, pearl barley, red split lentils, green and yellow split peas and marrowfat peas - try to get one with no salt or preservatives. Most won't have any as these ingredients can be dried easily)
200g of Frozen Veg Mix (peas, sweetcorn, baby carrots and green beans were in ours)
50ml of Quinoa
50g of Buckwheat
The soup mix needs to be soaked overnight as it's dried, then rinsed and cooked until soft. Cook the frozen veg, quinoa and buckwheat. I cooked everything separately then through them together in a mixing bowl. We rinsed off the soup mix again before adding it to the rest, which cooled it all down. To finish off, I sprinkled in some herbs - thyme, basil, sage - cinnamon, and some crushed chillies. Mix it all up together and it's done. We freeze ours in ice cube trays and defrost it when we need it.
This is how it looks:
This makes quite a lot of food. We probably have enough for our 6 birds for about three or four weeks with this recipe. You can also add in other things before serving, like seeds or pellets, especially for birds you're introducing this new food to. All the ingredients are human quality, and Tom tried it and tells me its actually pretty good for human consumption too.
