It's a little tricky because protein sources for vegetarian products are often ingredients like wheat or corn. Those are okay when the ingredient is, for example, wheat protein or gluten not wheat.
From the FAQ for Phase 1:
SOY BASED MEAT SUBSTITUTES
Unless otherwise stated, look for products that have 6 grams of fat or less per 2-3 ounce serving
Soy Chicken unbreaded
Soy Crumbles - 1/4 cup (2 oz) suggested serving
Soy hot dogs
Sausage Patties and Links
Tempeh 1/4 cup suggested serving
Burgers that are okay in my opinion:
Any Boca burgers other than grilled vegetable. Not the patties, crumbles or chick*n.
Gardenburgers all include grains so are not Phase 1 friendly. The same is true of Praeger burgers.
Lightlife products look good if you can find them where you live. Also many Trader Joes veggie products.
*it doesn't look like most veggie burgers in the US use potato
