On my soft food diet I could have instant ones thinned out. Try that if you are allowed.

I made some really yucky ones. I thought I could just puree a can of potatoes. They were like paste and totally gross. They are allowed on my plan, but if I try them again, I'm going with the instant kind suggested by @ShrinkingPeach

@@no onions canned potatoes .... sounds awful not to mention pureeing them.

Maybe we should talk to a cook at an Old Folks Home and some Seniors about the best tasting puree'd food. lol B)

Canned potatoes? Didn't even know they existed! ???? I have only ever made mashed spuds with fresh potatoes, milk and butter.

My post-op plan mentions instant potatoes as well. I was wondering what was wrong with real ones??

Instant mashed potatoes thinned out was something my nutritionist recommended at a week out. She said thin them out so the didn't stock in your throat.

I really can't imagine a situation where mashed potatoes would EVER be a good idea. They're pure carbohydrates. Can you have fat free refried Beans? I really like the refried black beans...they were the best during that part of the diet.

I'm a very picky eater and Mashed Potatoes is a definite for me! I usually don't finish them cause I get full on the 2-3 oz of either chicken or turkey that I have.

I don't think I'm doing too bad since I'm down 97lbs since my surgery on Jan. 21, 2015. :-) (that's from my preop weight, fyi - from surgery day it's 80lbs).
