Those jerked portabella mushrooms Mark makes aren't bad either.  :-)

And what about Chile Relanos, or is she one of those I don't do any animal
product Vegans?  Some vegitarians eat cheese, and eggs.  Some eat fish,
and some even eat chicken.  

FWIW, there are some textured vegetable protein things that are actually 
tasty, having tried them at some cookins (

Ratatouille, and vegetable casseroles using sliced summer or zuccini
squash, potatoes, onions, and tomato (spaghetti) sauce, along with
whatever chiles and spices you like are quite nice. Add some celery,
garlic, parsley, olive oil, etc if using tomato sauce.

I tried some curried rice from Trader Joe's that has chile peppers, apple, 
raisins, peas, and other veggie stuff in it (frozen food) and it was
really good.  OK, Trader Joe's is one of my favorite stores.  I like 
their Jalopena Chicken Chimichangas (package of 2 for $2.29) a lot.
Yeah, I'm a meat eater.  Being a vegitarian is a lot of work, IMO.
