Could it be... Seitan?

Forgive the lame joke. If you watched Saturday Night Live in the early 90's you'll get the reference.This is Seitan, which is wheat gluten. Basically, it's the protein part of wheat. The texture is meaty and it's loaded with protein and very low in fat. I stir fried strips of seitan with broccoli in a little bit of oil, soy sauce, and sesame seeds.

way back in the dark ages, about the 1960's my grandmother made her own "seitan". It was wonderful.
