Nearly every nutrient meat provides can be completely provided for in a diverse vegetarian diet. The two main nutrients that vegetarians are infamous for being deficient in are B12 and Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s can be found in plant matter but some animals eat so much of them they become super concentrated. This is very healthy for us. You can find them in green leafy vegetables, sea vegetation, unrefined vegetable oils, free range animal meats and deep water fish. B12s are tougher to find and exist in meat mostly. A vegetarian diet can find them in nutritional yeast, fortified cereal, and fortified soy milk.
Note: Health food stores generally carry B12 and Omega-3 supplement tablets. If you are worried about your intake just take these or a multivitamin. Vegetarians can not only survive in the absence of meat but flourish in unsurpassed levels of healthiness!
So the answer is soy protein is almost.. nearly a perfect substitute.
B-12, omega-3, and iron cannot be found in soy. On another note, I would not recommend replacing all of meat nutrition with just soy. A variety of foods are required to acquire and absorb all of the nutrients found in meat. Research is still out whether or not high levels of soy can be unhealthy, especially for women.
