3 days of Liquids...

After having those 2 teeth out last Thursday I've been on liquids. I go onto soft foods today - YAY, but have been getting by on soups, smoothies and juices for 3 days. While I love soups and smoothies, I'm ready to move on! Just for your entertainment here are 3 of the soups I've been eating. No recipes for any of them, but I've written a few notes about what I did for each so you could probably make up something similar if the desire struck you, or you find yourself missing 2 teeth all of a sudden.

Spinach, Parsley and Cilantro
Sauteed onion and shallots, added in a packet of frozen spinach, a chopped up potato and cooked in veggie stock until the potato was done. Added a bunch of parsley and a bunch of cilantro, cooked a few minutes and blended until smooth. Tastes much better than you'd think.

Thai Curried Pumpkin, Carrot and Potato
Grated carrot and potato cooked in coconut milk and veggie broth, with a little red Thai curry paste and some sauteed red onion and garlic, to which I added the left overs from a tin of pumpkin, then blended until smooth. Better the second time after it had sat in the fridge for a day.

Mexi Roast Pepper, Garlic and Tomato with Guacamole
I roasted a red pepper, a head of garlic and then added those to a soup I had going using red onion, shallots, sun dried tomatoes, veggie broth and a tin of roasted tomatoes. I added in 1/2 tin of leftover beans, blended until smooth and topped with a rough guacamole made from avocado, Vegenaise and lime juice.

Gotta love some soup!

I can't stop eating Soup!
I've been making a HUGE pot every other day and I'm the only one eating it!
I can't help it - I'm addicted.
These all look lovely but the Mexi Roast Pepper gets my vote just for it's AWESOME colour and also it's the most similar to the Soups I'm making and craving at the moment.
Hope your teeth are better.
