Foods for the Pureed/Soft Stages?



Recommended Posts

I'm pescatarian, but my diet is mostly vegan. I hate soft cheeses like ricotta, and generally, things like soft cheeses, mayo, etc. I see a lot of this type of thing suggested for the pureed/soft stages. I'm wondering what are good vegetarian/vegan options during this time?

I am preop and have been vegan for a few years. I am planning on tofu scramble, refried Beans, split pea Soup, blended Soups, blended lentils, chia pudding, soft tofu dishes and maybe cashew & cauliflower ricotta if I can tolerate it.

Try veggies/fruit that can be mashed (carrots, cauliflower, squash, bananas, apples, etc.). You could try mixing Protein Powder into applesauce, grits, oatmeal, or cream of wheat. There's vegan yogurt. What do you like to eat now?

I am on the preop diet now and I really like pea Protein isolate blended into broth when I am tired of shakes. I like the vitacost brand.

Agree with the suggestions above with the addition of maybe some vegetarian chili? I know I had chili with meat and Beans several times now (we were allowed it in puree and now in soft foods). Vegetarian lentil Soup (I ate this blended down in the liquid stage). LOVED the refried beans in these stages too.

I'm currently in pureed stage and refried Beans are great so far. Chili is also on my list, so I second what SummerTimeGirl mentioned about finding a vegetarian/vegan chili. My hospital also recommended blending up some Soups for pureed stage (adding in some Protein Powder if needed). At the hospital I had some pureed green beans and they were super yummy. The texture didn't bother me as much as I thought it was going to, so maybe cook and season some veggies you like and then puree into a mash potato sort of consistency?

I also did a ricotta bake. It has ricotta, parmesan cheese, basil, salt, and pepper in it. Then a bit of marinara/pizza sauce over the top. I don't usually like ricotta cheese on it's own, but the bake tastes more like lasagna to me. Really nummy option -if- you like lasagna but maybe don't like ricotta solo. Just throwing it out there as I'm not sure if it was just ricotta that you hated, or if ricotta in things was also a no-go.

      Work is still stressful and I'm on sick leave for this week because of acute laryngitis (corona tested negative twice). 😷
      I'm surprised that I still get reactions for posts sometimes, even though some of them are quite old now.
      Anyway, hoping people are ok!

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
