Broths are good because they're hydrating, warming and nourishing as well as easy to sip/spoon from a mug. If you've got the time/inclination to make some proper stock from a beef bone that's a great base. Pulses, herbs, vegetables, garlic plenty of seasoning.

Rice pudding with Stewed or fresh fruit, Blancmange with fresh fruit (strawberry blancmange with fresh strawberries) - I know these are puds, but, I like puds smile. Risotto made with julienne veg and chicken breast, poached fish, haddock with poached egg and crusty bread and butter or chicken breast, carrots, green beans and tiny new pots cooked in veg stock (usually add a tablespoon of porridge oats to thicken stock slightly without changing taste too much) or milky porridge, that's nice with a dollop of jam or golden syrup. Hope this helps and DH feels better soon.

Things on toast - I always enjoy that. Cheese and onion, cheese and tomato, baked beans, tinned tomatoes ( not everyone's cup of tea, agreed, but I love tinned toms on toast), mashed sardines and marmite and mushrooms.
