jaw pain friendly soup recipes for TMJ patients

Tomato Basil Soup:

1 cup chopped onion
5 cloves garlic, smashed
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
3 28 ounce cans whole tomatoes
2 cups vegetable stock or chicken stock
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
Salt and Pepper to taste

Saute onion and garlic in olive oil in large saucepan until tender
Add tomatoes and vegetable/chicken stock. Bring to boil and remove from heat
Pour into blender and process until pureed. You may have to do this in sections…it is a lot of soup.  Personally, I use an immersion (hand) blender. I have this one from KitchenAid and really like it .
Stir in vinegar, cream, basil, salt and pepper.

Serve with grilled cheese sandwiches! 🙂
Next week is breakfast week, and we have some awesome recipes in store for you! You may have TMJ disorder, but that doesn’t mean you have to eat the same boring, mushy food for every meal!
