Pureed food -- good ideas?
Looking for creative, out-of-the-box pureed food recipes -- anyone had success pureeing real meals (think, salmon, fajitas, etc.) for a friend in the hospital with a jaw wired shut. Has to be something you can eat through a straw -- and he is a little tired of smoothies, soups, yogurt, and juices!

A very runny chia pudding could probably be sipped through a large straw, and the chia seeds would provide some texture without actually requiring chewing.
Also, the pureed soups that are most common in the US are pretty mild in flavor. If this is mostly the type of soup your friend has been eating, he might enjoy spicier and more strongly flavored soups like an Indian rasam, a pureed form of a Thai coconut or hot and sour soup, Egyptian red lentil soup, etc.
