Try looking into living and raw foods. It uses many different things to create a meat texture, like almonds.
I actually have had dinner at raw foods restaurant. It was delicious! ...and I have a very Italian mother who can cook beyond belief.

I haven't read every entry on this thread, so if I'm repeating, forgive me. I'm not really fond of tofu, and the one time I truly loved it a neighbor of mine cut it into noodle-sized threads and put it in hot/sour soup.

Having had many friends and relatives over the years who either chose or for medical reasons HAD to eliminate entire food groups from their diets, I've learned that when you delete an entire section of that food pyramid from your diet, you need to do some research about what you are cutting out. Humans are built to be omnivores, able to get our nutrition from many food sources. From my observation, the more variety the better. So when you get rid of one complete food group, look up the nutritional content and supplement as needed.

vyapti, very well said. And I am a big meat eater. And it also applies to other diets low carb, low fat, low this or that. All of them can be very good for you, but most people do them on advice from a friend who followed what a friend told them. I had someone tell me that a low carb diet was no carbs for two weeks. The Atkins book says not eating carbs is dangerous.

I had to reduce the meat due to dietary restrictions. I substiute beans, fish, chicken, all vegetable meals, pancakes, french toast, or clear soup with veggies.

Tofu, Spinach and Mushroom Salad
8oz Tofu mashed
2 bunches spinach cleaned and torn into bite size pieces
4oz fresh mushrooms thinly sliced
2 Tbsp. fresh herbs
Toss all together. Serve with a yogurt or a herb salad dressing.
