The majority of your protein will come from the beans/legumes and grains categogory.
The suggestions below come from the book "Becomming Vegan"
(though I lumped fruits/veg together)
LIke Oatmeal said - eating a variety of foods is important
Beans/Legumes (at least 2 servings): These can be lentils, garbanzos, soy beans, black beans, kidney beans, refried beans (veggie type). I believe soy milk qualifies in this 1 cup being a full serving I think.
Grains (4-6 servings or more): This can be rice, cous cous, oatmeal, cold cereal, spaghetti, bread, tortillas, pancakes (ww I hope), etc.
Vegetables/Fruits (4 or more servings): This is wide open. Fresh Fruits, Salads, marininated/pickled vegetables, cooked vegetables, etc. etc.
You'll want to consider calcium: Since you don't like tofu - try calcium fortified orange juice or soy milk. I take a supplement just to be sure.
Omega 3 is also a consideration. Take a supplement like Flax seed oil - or use flax seed meal and/or oil as a condiment.
Finally B12. Take a supplement or eat foods fortified with it.....or use nutritional yeast as a condiment (it's yummy!!).
I'm sure this is more than you wanted to know. I had a few minutes though
