Some Quick Recipes For Soft Food

Just had a dental surgery or an extraction or maybe you just got your braces on, either way you have now been advised to change your diet a little bit for a few days to soft foods in order to protect your sensitive teeth from any damage and to ensure you recover faster. We have all been there and wondered what food should we consume and what we should not. A nutritious meal goes a long way in making sure that we recover fast and properly. A diet of soft food is generally considered good as it provides minimum discomfort to you. A soft food diet may not seem tempting to many but there are so many tasty as well as healthy soft food items that one can have, that you will be surprised. Today we bring you to some of these soft foods that you can easily and quickly prepare at your home. These are tasty and healthy too. 

For Breakfast  

Soft scrambled eggs – Who does not know how to make some scrambled eggs, the trick here is to make them on medium low heat and not letting the eggs dry out. Use butter instead of oil to make them tastier and you could add some cheese too.  

  1. Melt some butter in a pan and whisked eggs to the pan when the butter starts bubbling. 
  1. As the sides of the egg start cooking, use a spatula to swipe the edges. Keep pushing and folding the eggs slow enough to cook but fast enough not to dry off. 
  1. Add salt as per taste and remove from pan and eat a healthy protein rich easy breakfast. 

Oatmeal – If you are one of those who prefers oat meals for breakfast then continue to eat them but with a twist. Blend your oatmeal before adding soft fruits like berries etc and voila you have a protein and fibre rich breakfast at hand.  

You can also make smoothies or sweet and savory crepes for breakfast. 


Tomato Gazpacho – A healthy and tasty soup for the soul.  

  1. Roughly chop some tomatoes, bell pepper and a shallot. All to be cored and seeded. 
  1. Add some salt and cumin and some vinegar to it. 
  1. Blend it and strain it. 
  1. Add olive oil for emulsification. After it thickens refrigerate it. 
  1. Add some soft meat like crab meat on top to make a healthy hearty soup. 

Tip – It is a good idea to have cool or lukewarm food instead of very cold or very hot especially when your teeth are sensitive. 

Other soups you may want to consider trying are Japanese miso soup, creamy potato soup, minestrone soup and creamy Mexican corn chowder. 

Side Dish 

Tofu and Cauliflower mash – Simple and quick side dish for you. 

  1. Boil potatoes and cauliflower separately till they soften, drain and set them aside. 
  1. Heat olive oil in a pan, add some pods of garlic till they brown. Cool the same. 
  1. Puree the pre warmed tofu and garlic in a food processor. 
  1. Mash the potatoes and cauliflower together. Add the puree of tofu and garlic to eat. Add salt and pepper as per your taste and there you have it. 

Other side dishes you can easily make and enjoy are mashed sweet potatoes, potato patties, turkey and sage patties and roasted eggplant pate. 


Slow roasted citrus and salmon – Salmon is rich in omega 3 fatty acids and is a very good source of lean protein and is also low in saturated fat. It is one of the easiest things to cook. 

  1. Preheat oven to 225 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.  
  1. Put some fresh cilantro on it. 
  1. Season salmon with salt on both sides after skinning. Place it on top of the cilantro. 
  1. Drizzle olive oil on top and rub it in. Place lemon and orange slices on top of the fish. 
  1. Roast until salmon is just done. Squeeze juice from lemon and orange on top of salmon before eating it. 

You can also try cauliflower mac and cheese, beef risotto, congee, porridge, polenta and sweet potato lasagna. 


Peanut butter banana ice cream – Only 3 ingredients needed for a nice dessert. 

  1. Slice the bananas. 
  1. Add them along with peanut butter and cocoa powder to a blender. 
  1. Blend till you get an ice cream like consistency. 
  1. Serve as it is. 

Keep in mind not to eat hard, crunchy and chewy stuff like nuts, candy, pizza crusts, raw carrots, corn on the cob etc. Have small frequent meals. Move from liquid to pureed and then soft food items after surgery or extraction. Now you can enjoy eating good healthy and tasty food while recovering.
