If you have no issues with gluten you could try seitan. It is made from wheat gluten protein and has a 3 oz serving size = 21 g protein and 2 net carbs. 120 calories approx.
Some people say it feels more meaty than tofu. I've always used extra firm tofu and you can roast it in the oven after flavouring it with a marinade (I like Bragg's Aminos - which also has protein and Franks hot sauces). I cut it up into cubes and add it to stir fry veggies. You can also mash-scramble it like eggs for a breakfast lettuce burrito, tucking it into romaine leaves and adding a dash of hot sauce and the veggie slices, and a bit of green onion.

Good Morning Valerie,
I am desperately seeking some protein vegetarian product? Have you identified any product as? Thanks in advance.

I'm all late. I really need to subscribe here. I think it would be helpful if we did start naming ideas.

I had Gardein Chick'n (sans the sauce) strips mixed with bell peppers and a little broccoli. I mixed in a little Braggs Aminos, curry season and stevia.

I am still trying to find the samples of the ones canadjineh suggested, but I did try brown rice protein and hemp protein. They were both hard to get down but I think the hemp fared better.

Finding vegetarian protein has not been easy. I do tofu stir fry for dinner sometimes or just a veggie pattie and vegetables. Here are some of the specific products:

Morningstarfarms products

https://www.morningstarfarms.com/pro...ecipe-crumbles

wherever you would use minced meat in recipe. This is very versatile.

and also use their veggie burger for protein as well

https://www.morningstarfarms.com/pro...veggie-patties - this one tastes better

and

https://www.morningstarfarms.com/pro...llers-original - better nutritional content for IP

I thought about it, but then I found out it was not Non-GMO and highly processed. I thought it would be good for mock sloppy joes though.

So far I have been sticking to Quorn and Gardein. If I find anything else, I'll try to report back. Does anyone use hemp hearts? Since I liked the hemp powder, I am thinking of adding those in. I could probably just toss those on a salad.

I use hemp hearts but they are very high in fats (albeit healthy ones) - they won't help in the IP weight loss plan. I only use in maintenance & sparingly.
I did pick up a sample packet of Hemp Hearts Reduced Fat Powder but haven't tried it yet. You can get more info from www.hemphearts.com (Rocky Mountain Grain Products). It has 35% less calories and 65% more protein than normal Hemp Hearts. 1/2 c = 220 cal, 7g fat, 11g carb minus 9 fibre carbs so only 2 carbs. It must be used with higher moisture foods like in soups, dressings, or drinks. (reading from the package)

If you have a chance to do some searching, there is a previous member here - "longdivision" is her user name and she has some really great vegetarian ideas!

I haven't been here in a while but I did want to report that I made my own seitan. Thanks Liana for the suggestion. I made ribs with WF doctored dressing. Really good. Next time I will add vegetable broth to replace some of the water.

Glad the seitan turned out well for you, Mizzthingaling! I'm not even sure how you make it since I can't have gluten, maybe I will google it just for info sake. Mock ribs, lol.

It's actually pretty easy. Season, add water, boil until it toughens. Then you can do what you want. For the ribs you bake it to get the meaty consistency and then you an grill it.
