4 crowns and a root canal means a lot of soup and mashed potatoes. I have been on a soft foods diet for the last two weeks and cannot wait to get my permanent crowns cemented so I can eat real food again. I will never take chewing for granted again.
In the meantime please let me share one of my favorite comfort soups.
Chicken Veggie Cheese Soup
- 1 20oz bag of frozen peas and carrots
- 2 cups diced potatoes ( I about 2 1/2 cups)
- 1 onion diced
- 4 cooked and shredded chicken breasts
- 1/2 cup of butter
- 12 chicken bouillon cubes
- 1 16oz bottle of cheese whiz
Put above in a pan and cover vegetables with just enough water to cover the vegetables. Boil until tender, and do not drain.
While above is cooking
Boil 2 quarts water with 12 chicken bouillon cubes ( I used Wyler's small cubes)
In yet another pot melt 1/2 cup butter and add flour until thick ( about a cup) Add chicken broth to paste and stir with whisk to break up most lumps. Pour mixture into large pot with veggies/water and stir. Add Cheese whiz to mixture and stir until melted. Add chicken and heat through. Serve and Enjoy!
Can be frozen. I did!
