soft food suggestions for braces

catbert | Mar 19, 2010 10:30 PM

hey there!

my lil sister got braces recently and basically everything hurts to eat. i'd like to hear some suggestions if any would be so kind, cause i sure as heck can't think of a lot...

so far i've made her a steamed beef dish. the beef was seasoned, put through the food processor until it was a paste, then steamed with some chinese marinade sauce and tiny bits of green onion and ginger. was thinking of the chinese steamed ground pork with salted fish and duck eggs dish, but this is definitely a very far, far, far off take. that came out really soft, but for sure would taste better with pork.
i've also given her some tofu and seawood soup, japanese curry, rice porridge/gruel, and of course, fruit smoothies.

aside from mashed potatoes (which would happen if i had some milk in the house), any help is appreciated. suggestions for making nutritious meals are much welcome (cause living off of junk or sweets would be bad).

thanks a bunch in advance!
