    Default Help... puree recipes needed

    Well i found last night that dd2 (15) can only have pureed food for the next six weeks. This includes Christmas and new year.
    I wasnt prepared for this as we were told pre op that she would be one soft foods for a week than back to a normal braces diet.

    What foods taste ok pureed?

    Any recipes?

    Any hints or tips?


    Thanks in advance

    How about smoothies? Or would they be too runny?

    Years ago a friend had a bad car accident and had his jaw wired shut. He used to eat pureed roast (meat, veg and gravy). I reckon fruit and oats would be ok

    Pumpkin soup
    Potato and leek soup
    Carrot soup or other veg/lentil soups in different combos
    Purée veg with butter, cheese, salt and pepper for nice flavour
    Fruit purées (cooked apple and pear, raw mango/peaches/banana etc)
    Smoothies blended with or without yoghurt and fruit/veg (could get celery, carrot, spinach, oats, cinnamon, honey etc)
    Custard, ice cream, jelly
    I'm not sure about pureeing meat and other things more substantial but could try it if she's keen.
    Good luck, poor girl hope she feels ok soon

    Smoothies are good.

    They gave her roast pork and veg with gravy at hospitsl last night and that was ok.
    I brought somevpureed fruit and no lump youghurt and will make custard tonight.
    Tomorrow i will do a shop to make my own fruits and stuff.
    I like veg with butter and cheese idea.

    She is doing ok. She cane out hosputal today and has just gone to give her friend a birthday gift.
    She pleaded with surgeon to give the ok to go to a party this afternoon. Being the mean mum i said no but she could go over for 5mins after the party to give bf her present.

    Biggest tip for fruit and veggies is to cook them in as little water as possible. Boiling in lots of water pulls all the flavour out, especially because you want them well cooked so they will puree without lumps.
