These are all good suggestions imo. As long as he's not on a restricted diet anything goes. You may want to watch spices as they may irritate his throat. The veg soup blended with everything in it sounds like a good idea too.
My ex had a broken mandibular condyle and while this was nowhere as serious as your hubs, we even blended up chili dogs for him to drink through a straw.
Best wishes for you and your husband.

I have quite a bit of experience w/ this and I will tell you that Ensure mixed w/ milk and slightly frozen makes a good shake. I also like mashed potatoes made thin w/ milk and chicken or beef base. Protein powders usually have a weird taste, but I have been using something called Beneprotein. You can mix it with any soft/liquid food and it's undetctable. If his energy is low it could be that he's not getting enough calories. I also take Benecalorie. Again, undetectable. And for the times when I just want something really delicious, I mix up a thin cake mix, chill it, and drink it with a straw. I know that you want to check all this w/ his doc, don't know if he needs extra protein or calories like I do. If you need more suggestions, you can pm me, I'm full of 'em. Good luck to you both.
