I agree, PETALIA, that's a fantastic book. Occasionally, you run into an obscure and/or expensive ingredient, but for the most part, the recipes are very accessible. Anyway, you can order pretty much anything online, lol.

There's a wonderful book by Brendan Brazier, "Thrive Foods". It contains about 200 - 100% plant based recipes which are wheat, yeast, gluten, soy, diary, and corn free. The recipes come from many different chefs. Furthermore, the author is concerned about using foods which are both nutrient dense and also have low environmental impact in their production. I'm really impressed with the whole concept and the recipes which I've tried to date have all been delicious.

I've had some success making soy free tempeh at home. I use things like peanuts, barley, sunflower kernels, beans (black eye, adzuki, pinto, etc.). The tempeh process gives you a burgery texture and it usually takes marinade pretty well. It won't be quite like tofu but I find lots of things to do with it.

There's a traditional Japanese tofu called goma dofu which is made from sesame rather than soy. You'll need a special ingredient called kuzu to make it, but as you have rather particular dietary needs the reality is you're going to have to make some effort! Here's a recipe for how to make goma dofu: www.justhungry.com/goma-dofu-sesame-

Try this recipe for gluten-free seitan:

tan.html

It does call for soy sauce, so if you are being SUPER strict about that, either omit, or use a soy-free alternative such as Coconut Secret aminos:

I'm supposed to be soy-free, gluten-free and vegan (doctor's orders due to hormone problems which mess with my thyroid, etc.), but I have a hard time following the soy-free part. I've been vegetarian for roughly 10 years, so the meat-free isn't hard, and cutting down on dairy to almost nothing (just a little milk in my daily coffee) wasn't difficult. BUT I just can't figure out how to live without tofu.

I love frying tofu and marinating and baking tofu and putting tofu in stir-fries. Clearly, if I wasn't veg, I could do all this with meat. I do eat a lot of beans, but I am looking for something more than just legumes.

Do you know of any meat-free, soy-free meat substitutes that can be used in this way?
