favorite mushy food recipes?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created October 11, 2012 at 3:30 PM

I just got braces and i can't chew anything to save my life.

I have access to a vitamix for a few days.

Cannot eat fruit or potatoes/sweet potatoes due to insulin resistance, but i do eat some dairy.

anyways, what are your favorite mushy foods to eat? soups and casseroles especially! or any snacks ideas? im stumped. i miss my bacon and im getting tired of eggs

eeep, sorry one other question. maybe ill make a new thread. how does liquifying your vegetables effect the absorption of nutrients if you include the skin, etc in a vitamix? or does it not?

It is! and it's pretty much impossible to f*** up. You can take it in a more savory direction (more garlic, olive oil perhaps) or a more sweet direction (less garlic, more orange juice, more cinnamon, perhaps some brown sugar)...

Metal colander sort of thingy. Place dates in them, above a pot of water. Lid it and boil the water. Or you can buy a proper steamer basket and not be ghetto like me.

Oh good! chicken liver will have a milder taste for a newbie. If you do beef/calf liver then soak it in buttermilk overnight. A lot more butter than you think is the key and then eat in small servings.

I notice none of the above answers have protein. Here's some protein for you:

Fish (mushed like for tuna salad) (canned salmon is perfect for this, though any fish, canned or fresh, will work.) Soy sauce Tahini Olive oil, if you like

yum.

Blended salad - greens like spinach, lettuces, favourite herbs; some cucumber, squeeze of lime if you can tolerate, maybe a bell pepper or tomato in there, and AVOCADO - like LOTS of avocado. It makes it creamy and yummy. Blend until it's a very unappetizing sludge (I use my food processor) and it's oh so very delicious :) Be sure to season with good salt.

I love it as a way to get way more greens in my diet, from my raw vegan days. The vitamix could help you make a ton of smoothies and such - I'm sure a google search would provide tons of ideas keeping within your dietary restrictions.

The mashed cauli is great too.. Not that I've made it with duck fat but other fats...

I also love a red curry coconut milk ground beef stew with lots of spinach and spices, that's sort of mushy, maybe if you cooked it slow for longer the bits of meat would really mush up.

Check out this awesome mashed cauliflower recipe:

http://paleomg.com/roasted-garlic-cauliflower-mashed-potatoes/

I personally use duck fat instead of olive oil. It's ungodly delicious.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that I use a small Pyrex loaf pan covered tightly with aluminum foil to bake the cauliflower. This way, if you want it super mushy, you can overbake it a little and it won't dry out.

Mashed plantains (aka fufu, mang??, etc). Peel a few very ripe plantains (skins will have black spots, or be mostly black), cut in half lengthwise, and place in a roasting dish with coconut oil (or butter), cinnamon, nutmeg, minced garlic, orange juice, and salt. There should be about 1/4" of liquid at the bottom of the dish. Bake at about 400 until soft - it should take 30-40 minutes. You may wish to flip them at 15 minutes. When they're nicely soft and caramelized, mash the plantains and leftover liquid a bowl (using a fork, or a potato masher) until mostly smooth.

I guarantee this will be delicious. Vary the proportion of garlic, spices according to your tastes.

Pureed squash and ginger soup. Ricotta mixed with unsweetened cocoa powder, honey, vanilla, and coconut. Panna cotta. Smoothies with lots of kale and coconut oil and coconut. Good luck- braces suck!

These are all I could think of... --Full fat yogurt? --Pate...but some liver, cook it in a pan with butter and bacon grease and blend in your vitamix. --Soup with soft veggies. --For a treat...soft cheeses like gouda. --I bet you could eat some canned salmon or tuna fairly easily with some homemade mayo.
