Foods that are easy to gum?

cosmogrrl | Nov 16, 2012 10:14 PM

I'm about to spend a week with my MIL and she recently got a set of dentures that are very painful for her to use.

I know of a lot of dishes, mashed potatoes or veggies, soups, my stuffing and a few others but I need more inspiration so I can make really great dishes for her. I'm covered for desserts, I'm looking for more savory dishes. The hubby hates chicken pot pie, so that's not really an option either.

She can chew some, like a slightly less than al dente (but not soggy) veggie, but a stew doesn't quite work (just because the meat can be hard for her). But a shepherd's/cottage pie would work with ground beef.

Thanks for your ideas!
