The word "mushy" is an adjective that usually describes food that is soft, or too soft, which is not a good thing. "Mushy" is similar to the word "soggy."
The rice is mushy.
To make a noun, add "ness" to the end of "mushy" and change the "y" to an "i." I don’t recommend that you use "mushiness" because it’s a fairly uncommon word, but this shows how you can go from one part of speech (an adjective that ends in "y") to another (a noun).
