What I had when I got my braces:
soup, mostly pureed
fettucine alfredo, noodles cooked extra soft
mashed potatoes
mac n' cheese
soft polenta
rice porridge, Chinese style with a little bit of ground meat
chuwanmushi (sp?), Japanese steamed egg custard. It's savory, not sweet
mushy peas
cottage cheese (full fat, please) sprinkled with some black pepper

Soups, leek and potato, butternut squash, vegetable, etc.
Rice noodles with veggies (think Vietnamese and Thai)

I remember those days of braces too well! I still cut corn off the cob to eat it decades later!

Soup is always the best!! I have a recipe on my blog for broccoli cheddar soup. http://www.bakingperfection...

Hummus or babaganoush. Without the bread of course.
Tomato soup with a garnish of pesto sauce.
Egg drop soup. Dim sum (if the filling and wrapping is okay for you)

Go retro and try a tomato aspic. Mushy tamales and re-fried beans. Polenta with cheese and mushrooms.
Bourbon and Lortabs.

V-8 is my favorite savory drink and the addition of beef bullion also helps bolster the need to feel like you are "eating" something
