In the old days of the vegetarian movement, perhaps twenty or forty years ago, a meal was still structured around the old cliché of ‘meat and two veg’ and a nut cutlet or rissole was substituted for the meat. This gave vegetarianism a bad name. All this has now changed. There is an infinite variety of meals and you can choose between one simple dish with several side dishes, or one intricate, substantial dish with perhaps just a side salad. There is no dish which is a meat substitute in itself. There is no need for one, nutritionally or aesthetically.
