have you tried Quorn products? they aren't soy based and they take marinades really well. you can find them at all natural markets and my target also carries them.


what is it about beans you dont like? what about chick peas? hummus? have you tried "hiding" beans or other things you dont like in your food in the form of purees? you can bump up nutrients that way.


are you going to feed drake soy and beans?

Quinoa is a grain, small and nutty in flavor, high in iron and protein. Did you mention why you do not like tofu? I wonder if you just have not had it done properly and mass produced tofu is generally gross, imo, and i buy locally made tofu that is 100000000 times better.

mgm78 has already explaned quinoa, but couscous is almost like a little pasta, only it is made out of semolina and is very light and fluffy. It is not nutritionally whole though, the way quinoa is.

Yeah, i think you need to come over to my house for dinner Seriously, though, If you do not eat any soy products and no beans, you are really going to struggle with getting enough protein, unless you survive solely on eggs and dairy. Also, beans have a lot of iron and that is always a concern wtih a vegetarian diet.

cottage cheese and greek yogurt are really high in protein and i would recommend eating those in your diet, as well as egg whites. I would also try to have an open mind and try some bean or tofu recipes. this is a really good one that is tasty and easy Tofu Lettuce Wraps
