Mushrooms of all sorts have a great chewy texture and can be prepared in all sorts of meat-mimicking ways (ground, julienned, grilled, et al). They don't substitute for the nutrients, but give the satisfaction of chewing and are filling.

Except for a new product line just released in December, Quorn products are not vegan. They contain egg, and some contain milk. The vegan product line will be available at Whole Foods Markets and other stores. www.just-food.com/news/quorn-launche

Quorn continues to garner criticism from watchdog groups like Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) because it is a fermented laboratory produced fungus with potential health risks.

You could make or buy seitan. It's wheat meat. Here are a couple of recipes www.theppk.com/2009/11/homemade-seit

There are commercial versions, but they're more expensive. Upton's Naturals makes excellent seitan www.uptonsnaturals.com/ Field Roast products are fabulous www.fieldroast.com/

Gardein also makes excellent faux meat products www.gardein.com/index.php Here's a link to a page that lists some other substitutes www.veganoutreach.org/guide/glossary

Most of these are available at Whole Foods Market and natural foods stores. You can also order from Vegan Essentials veganessentials.com/ or one of the other online stores.

I make a taco salad recipe with walnuts. I do not like when vegan foods try to be like their meat counterparts. In general, it sets them up for failure. With the taco "meat" I felt like the walnuts did a good job of imitating the texture of ground beef. The seasonings made the taste similar. Here's a link to a blog I wrote detailing the recipe if you are interested. Aside from walnuts I haven't seen anything besides soy used as a meat alternative.

I won't eat soy products (tofu or TVP) so I am looking for other options.

I just came across a ground meat substitute made from walnuts and cauliflower. It looks like it might work in recipes where the meat is cooked and then crumbled. I plan on buying the ingredients and trying the recipe tonight - I'll report back on that.

Any other suggestions for faux ground meat?
