do you have any good soup recipes? i have to eat soft foods from now on due to TMJ, and am having a difficult time choosing some easy to chew soup recipes. im really looking for some which include easy to chew protein sources so i can attempt to meet my protein requirements (dark meat, fish,etc)
also, are there any organ meats that are soft as well? im really looking to get into these but was told that they lean towards the chewy side??

Egg drop soup! It's so easy - make some bone broth. Heat, eggs in, stir til the whites have gone lightly cobwebby and eat. Yummy, cheap, really nutritious and you can get your protein in. I'd throw in some veggies and possibly some meat too, but I guess it depends how soft you need your diet to be.
In terms of soft organ meats, it's really easy to make liver pat??. It makes the liver much more palatable (to me, anyway), and perfect for a soft food diet. I just fry up some onions, garlic, mushrooms, bacon, spices and liver in ghee, then blend. Easy :)

Lean-Chicken Veggie Soup
2 large skinless chicken breast, 1/2 teaspoon thyme, 1/2 teaspoon marjoram, 1 bunch celery (chopped), 1 medium head cabbage (chopped), 1 large green bell pepper (chopped), 1 zucchini (chopped), 6 onions (chopped), 8 tomatoes (chopped), 1 tablespoon onion powder, 2 cloves garlic (minced), 8 whole peppercorns, 1 bay leaf.
In a large pot filled with water, simmer the chicken breasts with the thyme and marjoram for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked. Remove the chicken and debone. Chop the chicken into 1/2'' or smaller cubes, discard the bones, and put the chicken back into the pot. Add the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, until the vegetables are tender and the flavors are well blended. Discard the bay leaf before serving.
