What Veggies Can Be Pureed?

All well-cooked vegetables can be pureed. But not all will yield the same rich and creamy consistency.

Working with root veggies is the easiest. They do not have any seeds and make thick and smooth vegetable purees.

However, avoid heavy starches. They can easily become sticky and give you a glue-like texture.

Squashes, pumpkins, and cauliflower are some other great options.

Fibrous veggies, on the other hand, are tougher to handle. They tend to leave strings behind that cannot be further processed.

Best Pureed Diet Recipes

Preparing the perfect puree is not as easy as dumping a bunch of veggies into your food processor. But with these smooth puree recipes, a lovely creamy texture is guaranteed, and they won’t taste like baby food.

1. Carrots

carrot puree


Want to use something more vibrant in color than your mashed potatoes? Then this carrot puree is the perfect dish for your pureed food phase.

For the perfect texture and silky smooth consistency, use a blender. Not a hand masher.

The recipe uses Vitamin X, but any powerful appliance will do the trick well.

With some nut milk and vegan butter added, this is as creamy as any carrot can get.

Of course, if you’re not following a plant-based diet, feel free to use small amounts of dairy butter and milk instead.

2. Spiced pumpkin with carrot

spiced pumpkin with carrot


Spicy, creamy, flavorful, and golden in color. This pumpkin and carrot silkiness tastes (and looks) almost like sunshine in a bowl, you won’t even miss regular foods.

Pumpkins, carrots, and onions. Creamed with some milk and butter. Then seasoned with turmeric, cayenne, ginger, and garlic.

So vibrant and tempting, this yummy thick liquid is the right texture to have at your fancy fall dinner parties.

3. Tomato Soup

tomato soup


I find that tomato soups are the perfect nourishment for summer days. They are vibrant and creamy. But not too warming as opposed to other fall ingredients.

This recipe roasts the tomatoes first. Hence the incredibly delicious taste. It also uses quite a bit of garlic and some basil for flavor.

Everything is simmered in veggie broth. So, yes, this is a vegetarian dish. If you prefer, use chicken broth instead. It will be equally tasty.

Drizzle with some heavy cream when serving. It will not only be creamier, but it may mellow some of that acidic bite from the tomatoes.

4. Butternut Squash

butternut squash


Squash soups are a fall-favorite creaminess that does not need any introduction.

They are velvety and packed with enough warm flavors to force you to cozy up in your nook afterward.

This soup, though? It may totally surprise you!

With cinnamon flavors, maple and brown sugar-sweetness, and a whole pint of heavy cream for silkiness, you’ll be licking your bowl in no time. Almost tastes like dessert, right?

This soup would also be a lovely healthy Thanksgiving recipe.

5. Curried Squash

curried squash


If you love curry flavors with squash (and who doesn’t?), this creamy bowl is perfect for your suddenly-cold fall days.

Besides the curry paste, it is also packed with coconut milk, sweet applesauce, and enough ginger to make it super flavorful.

It also uses some brown sugar, to wrap everything nicely.

Spicy and earthy, it is cozy comfort at its best!

This pureed recipe is also a great choice if you are recovering from bariatric surgery.

6. Pumpkin Butter

pumpkin butter


Mmm, pumpkin butter! That sweet, aromatic, thick, and super comforting spread is the perfect match for your soft food diet.

Isn’t that the perfect way to use up all that extra pumpkin around Halloween, or what?

This puree food recipe combines brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, apple fruit juice for creaminess, and a touch of vanilla.

You can also make it any time of the year with canned pumpkin puree. Just keep in mind that it will be quite darker in color that way.

7. Mashed Potato and Kohlrabi

mashed potato


Haven’t tried a kohlrabi puree before? Trust me, it will become your fall dinners’ new best friend.

Along with potatoes, it makes one starchy, filling, and incredibly satisfying dish.

But the thing you’ll love the most about this recipe is the spicy fragrance that the juniper berries infuse into the liquid.

Make sure to discard them before mashing, though. Chewing on these black rounds is no fun.

8. Leek and Potato Soup

leek and potato soup


Adding leeks instead of onions in your soups is a great way to introduce some depth to that creaminess into pureed food recipes.

Plus, they have a more delicate flavor, which goes perfectly with potatoes’ smooth texture.

This soup, however, uses both. Leeks and onions. And if you haven’t tried it, it is a total game changer. Or should I say taste changer?

Cooked in chicken stock and creamed with some butter for the silkiest thing ever.

If you want to, you can add some cream here as well.

9. Broccoli



The thing I love the most about broccoli soups? They are so darn quick and easy to make. Plus, it is just as tasty as frozen florets, which saves a lot of time.

This soup features some onions and celery for a fragrant flavor and balanced diet. Plus, a couple of potatoes for a thicker consistency. And a more tummy-filling bowl that hits many food groups.

The soup uses water and some chicken bouillon, but I prefer it with plain ol’ chicken broth, instead.

My trick? Top it off with sour cream instead of heavy cream for a tangy touch that tastes amazing.

10. Parsnip



Better than potatoes, this parsnip mash makes one creamy winter meal to meet your nutritional needs.

The trick to the smooth creaminess here? The parsnips are actually cooked in milk and cream, rather than water or broth. And I highly suggest you try this the first time!

Just slice the root veggies. Add them to your pot along with the rest of the ingredients. Cook until the liquid is reduced. And puree with a hand blender inside.

Simple, quick, incredibly rich and flavorful with good nutrition!

11. Chicken Liver Pate

chicken liver pate


Not used to cooking with chicken organs? This recipe is the perfect place to start, then!

Loaded with mushrooms, infused with rosemary, blended to smooth creaminess, and then topped with melted butter.

Yes, it is as silky as it sounds!

Just grab your immersion blender and get cooking!

12. Hummus



This hummus is packed with enough protein to energize you until dinner. Which makes it a perfect addition to your lunch box.

The classic flavors of chickpeas, tahini, lemon, and cumin, join forces in this creamy dip.

Serve with your favorite crunchy vegetable sticks. And there’s nothing else to do but enjoy.

13. Tomato Tarragon Soup

tomato tarragon soup


Tarragons and tomatoes? Have you tried this combination before? If not, you’re in for some surprise. Pleasant, of course!

Rich, creamy, and herby, you cannot help yourself but top this vibrant soup with some sour cream.

And? It only takes 20 minutes to make.

14. Chia Avocado Chocolate Mousse

chia avocado chocolate mousse


Only six ingredients are needed for this creaminess, so add them to your grocery list now.  Who knew that avocado and dark chocolate could create such a healthy treat?

The recipe includes coconut milk, vanilla, chia seeds, and maple. But feel free to swap the syrup with some sugar-free option.

Served with whipped cream, it is absolutely irresistible!

15. Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Coconut Lime Cream Drizzle

roasted butternut squash soup


If a flavorful vegan soup is what you’re looking for, here is some good news. This recipe is what you’ve been waiting for all along.

Roasted squash and poblano peppers, then cooked with some onions in veggie broth and… wait for it… beer!

Yes, this spicy vegan soup uses amber beer, maple syrup, coconut milk, and a touch of cinnamon for some warmth.

16. Vegan pumpkin Vodka Sauce

vegan pumpkin vodka sauce


While it certainly lacks flavor, vodka gives this sauce richness. Simply put, it just adds a bit of something that completely transforms this sauce.

It is based on pumpkins, cauliflower, tomatoes, and cashews. Plus, a whole array of spices that work really well with the booze here.

This Instant Pot delight will be perfect for your cooked pasta.

17. Carrot and Ginger

carrot and ginger soup


A perfect way to use up all the leftover carrots pushed at the back of the veggie drawer in your fridge.

A gingery carrot soup with lentils and onions. A great vegan lunch option for anyone looking for more plant-based recipes.

It also contains turmeric. Together with ginger, they create a real explosion of flavors and fragrances.

This yummy soup would pair nicely with these high-calorie smoothies.

18. Beer Cheese Soup

beer cheese soup


Another beer-loaded soup that you will absolutely adore!

Smoky bacon, spicy jalapenos, and smooth white cheddar cheese! The main stars of this recipe. Combined with the beer and heavy cream, together they create one flavorful and velvety bowl.

That will warm you up in an instant. So how can you not serve this on a cold day when you need something to cozy you up?

19. Roasted Cauliflower Soup

roasted cauliflower soup


Roasting the cauliflower head before adding it to your soup pot really makes all the difference. And if you haven’t tried this before, this recipe will be the perfect introduction to roasted soups!

It is simple. Easy to follow. And you only need 20 minutes of prep time. Most of which includes chopping up the cauliflower.

With garlic, thyme, heavy cream, and shredded cheese, this is as close to comfort food as any soup could possibly get.

20. Peach Butter

peach butter


Peaches and amaretto are my new favorite flavor combination! But this recipe also includes crushed pineapples.

The step you shouldn’t skip here is the four-hour marinade. The peaches are coated with sugar, amaretto, and a touch of lemon juice and nutmeg. And then chilled for four hours.

This infuses the flavors and results in a much tastier butter.

Pack it into a cute little jar, and it makes a perfect homemade gift, as well!

21. British Root Veggie Mash

root veggie mash


Root veggies make a wonderful mash. Seriously, they do not have hard skin, no seeds. Nothing gets in the way.

This creamy side dish is made with butternut squash, onions, rutabagas, carrots, parsnips,

And of course, the inevitable butter. Lots and lots of butter.

Thyme is the herb that rounds out these veggies perfectly, but use whatever seasonings you prefer.

A healthy and nutrient-packed dish, that can easily be turned vegan. If you swap the butter with a plant-based alternative.

22. Jalapeno Hummus

jalapeno hummus


Spicy and hot hummus, anyone?

Chickpeas, tahini, lemon, and garlic also play the main role here. But with a guest star that will definitely steal the show – jalapeno peppers.

Creamy, rich, and really thick. This can easily be a spread for your crusty bread.

Top with chopped herbs and jalapeno slices, if serving at a party.

23. Roasted Acorn Squash Apple Peanut Soup

roasted acorn squash apple peanut soup


Creamy, thick, and super-rich. But without any cream!

This 30-minute squash soup with celery, onions, carrots, and apples, is nourishment at its best.

With tons of warm spices to elevate the flavor, I urge you to try this out.

If you want a vegan dish, swap the chicken broth with a veggie one.

Acorn squash is truly the best ingredient for healthy fall soup recipes.

24. Tomato Basil soup

tomato basil soup


Roasted tomatoes, caramelized onions, fresh basil, and lots of garlic. Seriously, there are seven cloves in this recipe. And you need them all!

The best thing is that you only need 10 minutes to prepare things. No peeling veggies, not heavy chopping either.

Just roast, caramelize, blend, and that’s it!

25. Potato Parsnip and Leek Soup

potato parsnip leek soup


Parsnips. Yukon gold potatoes. Leek. And a whole garlic bulb. Plus, the perfect Italian seasonings boost the flavors.

Cooked in nourishing chicken broth, this is one hearty dish that will inject so many nutrients into your day.

I like it topped with sour cream, but that’s just my tangy-craving palate talking.

 26. Vegetable Soup

vegetable soup


Mixed veggies with coconut milk and a touch of lemon. Then blended to smooth perfection.

This recipe combines onions, celery, garlic, carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower. How tasty and nutritious does that sound?

Plus, there is harissa paste for some warm Middle Eastern flavors. This soup is destined to satisfy your taste buds.

27. Curry Coconut Cauliflower Soup

curry coconut cauliflower soup


Curried soups are a warm addition to your fall dinners when the temperatures suddenly drop.

This one also includes garlic, ginger, onions, and lime juice. So it is also packed with an irresistible fragrance.

Plus, it is creamed with coconut milk. A spicy and nourishing cauliflower soup that deserves a spot in everyone’s recipe folder.

28. Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

roasted red pepper soup


Roasted red peppers with almonds, garlic, and olive oil, for a creamy and incredibly thick, spread-like sauce.

The recipe uses some basil leaves and lemon zest for a bit of oomph to the taste. Do not omit it, as it will otherwise be a bit on the bland side.

If you like it spicier, add some chili flakes for some kick.

29. Roasted Pumpkin Apple Soup

roasted pumpkin apple soup


Pumpkin soups have to be one of the most regular creamy delights during the fall. But have you ever tried them with apples?

This recipe from scratch is packed with nutritious food like raw pumpkins and apples. Which are roasted. Then mixed along with carrots and onions in a veggie broth. And finally, blended to creamy perfection.

I highly suggest Granny apples for this recipe. They are a bit sour and not overly sweet, which will complement the natural sweetness of the pumpkin beautifully.

30. Fava Bean

fava bean


With dried fava beans, this classic Italian antipasto is made from scratch. And with ease!

Bring tasty Mediterranean flavors to your table, in the simplest way possible! With just fava beans, chicory, olive oil, and some salt and pepper, magic is created here.

Delightful and vegan, this bean puree dish will nourish you from the inside out.

31. Butter Chicken

butter chicken


No, it is not the chicken that’s pureed here, but the buttery sauce.

And let me tell you, it is THE best thing to pour over your cooked chicken. Especially if you are looking to incorporate more solid foods into your mechanical soft diet.

It is buttery, loaded with onions, super creamy, and incredibly spicy. The sauce uses classic Indian flavors such as ginger, garlic, cardamom, coriander, and a lot more.

Yup, the spice ingredient list is quite lengthy. But your taste buds will be so grateful for the extra trouble.
