My wife is allergic to any SOY and a bunch of other foods. The immediate substitutes are eggs, garbanzo & white beans, and cheese - specifically riccota, bulgarian feta (lower sodium) and cotija. If you have other ideas, love to hear them.
Well, for what reason are you eating tofu? Because you like it, or because you want to go vegetarian? As an inexpensive meat substitute? I enjoy it about once a year. If you are not concerned about eating animal protein, use chicken in most cases.
I finally got serious about the diet, but keep coming across recipes that include Tofu. I hate tofu. Is there something similar that could be substituted?

I'm not sure what you can do to substitute it in sweet recipes although using the unsmoked version in pies, creams (like ice cream) and as an alternative to cream most people can't tell they're eating tofu. Hope this helps Linda (06/18/2006)

Open a package of tempeh, cut into slices, fry litely in oil, turning on all sides, sprinkle with soy sauce if desired, use a meat in recipes. Or just tuck it into a sandwich. This immediately improved my cooking repertoire. (06/21/2006)
