Best as a tofu substitute: Seitan

Seitan is made entirely from the main protein found in wheat called gluten (so it naturally won’t be right for those with gluten sensitivities). It has a dense, chewy texture that some compare to steak, and if you’re looking for something to use in place of firm tofu, this is a good pick. Just half a cup has over 75 grams of protein, so you don’t need much of this stuff to feel full. It’s an easy addition to wraps, as it tastes good chilled as well as warm.
