Help with soft food diet please!!!

My dear Hubby is home from Stanford and needs to eat soft foods (no chewing involved, or are dissolvalble like chocolate) that are tasty and nutritious.

He is at risk for bleeding and has lost sensitivity in his cheeks so can easily bite his cheek.

I've done mashed potaotes, guac or p-nut butter shooters, mashed banana, legume soups, yogurt smoothie etc.

CAN YOU GIVE SIMPLE SUGGESTIONS TO GET MY BRAIN GOING? I'M TRYING TO MAKE THE FOOD AND PRESENTAION AS NICE AS POSSIBLE while the rest of us are sometimes eating regular (chewed) foods as well. Trying to mix up the menu so he doesn't feel like he's being relegated to hospital-type food. After 82 days of that, he's ready for the change and a dose of REAL LIFE. He is doing well for now and we want to make his life as normal as possible.

Thanks, hounds, I'll know you'll help me make this work. Nothing like giving food to someone as the ultimate expression of LOVE.

Bless you!
