Don't forget the quinoa--it's a complete protein (9 amino acids). It isn't a meat substitute from a texture standpoint, but could make up for the missing protein in a portobello sandwich. Very versatile and yummy!

Quorn products...naked cutlets...for anything "chicken" like fajitas or chicken parmesan or chicken sandwiches.

Morning Star for 'sausage' or 'beef 'crumbles, hot dogs and Prime Grillers for burgers. I also use their sausage patties for breakfast sandwiches. I love their chicken strips or nuggets, too.

Boca for awesome Italian sausage..cut up on pizza or in tomato sauce.

St. Ives for pepperoni slices and some 'lunch meats'.

The Quorn stuff is good, but they're not vegan (and my husband is).

Morningstar substitutes are what we use most. The crumbles are great in chili, manwich, and goulash. We use the steak strips in this dish that's a converted recipe from my grandmother - "beef steak" potato bake (really good comfort food), and their chicken strips are great for chicken cacciatore and chicken parm.

Safeway was selling their own brand "Eating Right" of vegan sausage patties and links that were really good, but I haven't seen them in a while.

I think we go through 5 or 6 lbs of soy beans a week. We use them as a snack when playing cards with the kids or watching movies. Beats popcorn with butter falling off of it.

Okay so this might not be the healthiest recommendation, but I'm a sucker for the frozen meat alternatives (Morningstar Farms chik'n patties, hot dogs, corn dogs, veg burgers, "riblets," crumbles, etc, Quorn "Naked chik'n cutlets", etc) You can find just about any meat substitution nowadays in the frozen section of, say, whole foods or other natural food stores. Been a strict ovo-lacto veg for 15 yrs now and our options have gotten SO much better now. Tofu and beans are great, remember to get your iron too, though, and vitamin C to help it absorb better! Dark leafy greens, kidney beans, nuts, etc. Good luck!

I have to admit, I love meat analogues. Tofurky roasts and sausages are pretty great. I'm dying to try the frozen vegan Buffalo wings the supermarket sells here, but the price is ridiculous at $6 a box.

Make your own gluten-based meat substitutes. It's easy and you can flavor/shape them however you like.

I personally love tofu and seitan. There are also tons of vegetarian meat substitutes out there that are much healthier and still taste great (maybe not exactly like what they are trying to replace, but still delicious). I've gotten into the tofurkey deli slices, morning star veggie crumbles (great for mexican food), and veggie nuggets/buffalo wings.
