|Meat plus some liver provides most of what a dog needs, add bone and there is the rest. Max's raw diet provides all but some vitamin E and manganese. He gets some zinc, omega 3s and magnesium as well because he doesn't get but 1.5% of his body weight. If I needed to cook Max's food I would simply substitute some pureed veggies and bone meal for the bone and continue to feed the same egg, meat and organ diet he is on now.
There are some commercial products designed to balance home cooked diets. Balance It has one for meat only diets, I suspect that is what you are looking for. You can enter your pet's information and diet preference and get a recipe complete with nutrition analysis then you get to buy the stuff to balance it. Basically it is a vitamin/mineral mix much like the stuff that goes in kibble. Your vet would definitely approve this stuff, the original company was founded by some vets from Davis U. in California. I am surprised your vet hasn't suggested it.
