Congratulations on trying this! I can totally relate to the wisdom teeth operation – I went through the same. Some of the vegan foods that I used after the surgery, that you might be able to benefit from:
-- steamed or baked mashed sweet potatoes
-- mashed boiled cauliflower
-- canned green beans
-- canned beans, mashed (they're softer than home-cooked beans)
-- soup, soup, soup!
-- Amy's brand frozen dinners, once you can chew a little bit – the black bean & tofu enchilada is vegan, as is the veggie meatloaf. Not the healthiest, but it'll do in a pinch.
-- green smoothies
-- homemade chili, mashed with a potato masher after cooking
-- lots and lots of water and lukewarm tea
I hope some of these are helpful.
