@Diz For low carb or protein or just to eat or?
I'd look at seitan. Particularly the home made varieties. You can use a variety of things to mix with the vital wheat gluten (which is the one constant ingredient for them all). Just one of many recipes and sites here:
vital wheat gluten
cooked lentils (I used canned)
nutritional yeast (search on Engevita in the UK - available in most supermarkets)
soy sauce - choose a tasty savoury substitute - eg mushroom sauce
Once you've got the basic steaks made, you can serve them as marinaded steaks, chunks in casseroles, slices in hot sandwiches - anything.
(Nutritional values at bottom of recipe)
Very high protein foodstuff.
Hi, for all three but particularly protein
Thanks for your reply, WuTwo, unfortunately as I mentioned they’re gluten free which means the ital wheat gluten is out of the question. Therein lies my problem, wheat gluten or soy seem to be the main protein sources and the reason I ‘m struggling.
Sorry about that.
@Robinredbreast is gluten free, but not veg or vegan, but has a son who is veggie so she might have some ideas that could help.
I do know some varieties of nut are very good sources of protein so you could look at nut roasts, or nut/veg burgers etc. as one source.
I'll keep thinking!
@Diz Hope this helps!!!!
You can usually find recipes for patties made from a variety of beans or nuts. Also protein shakes are being made in a variety of different plant proteins. You can use rice protein or pea protein shakes or smoothies. Protein powders can even just be added to some of the foods you cook. You can usually add beans, nuts and seeds to the top of salads or vegetable dishes. Pates from beans, nuts and seeds make nice dips, nuts and seeds you can make nut or seed butters.
Walnut pate with crackers or carrot or celery sticks, nut butters with celery. peanut sauces and peanuts with veggies.
Possible, but maybe not low carb enough?
Hummus or falafel of course from garbanzo beans/chickpeas. Also baked beans, you can use any bean with different flavorings for variety too. Take foods you like and just add any of the different items to them. Peas which are fast becoming popular, I believe they belong to the legume family. They easily can be added to a range of items.
Here is a link to a list of 7 items
Quinoa is not low carb, and beans and peas probably aren't high on the list of low carb items either.

I forgot pea protein!
I did think of the nut/bean roasts and patties last night but by then I'd got into the shower/night time set of activities.
Also, black rice has lots of protein, anti-inflammatories, iron, potassium, anti virals - a 1/2 cup serving of prepared black rice, made from about 1/4 cup of uncooked rice, contains 160 calories, 1 1/2 grams of fat, 34 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of fiber, 5 grams of protein, and 4 percent of iron.
It goes well with all the usual rice dishes, and apparently makes a delicious rice and coconut pudding.
