    You might find THIS LINK to Brad Pilon's blog of interest. It doesn't have recipes but it talks about how much protein one needs and has a section specifically for vegans. At least it is a start.

    You'll need to rely on whole grains, quinoa is best. Others, whole grain bread, brown rice and barley. Beans, Lentils and Legumes; tofu and other soy stuff. Then theres Nuts, Seeds and Nut Butters as well as Seitan, Veggie Burgers and Meat Substitutes. Lastly there's stuff called tempeh.

    Getting the amount you need for supporting workouts will be tough. Look for other protein powders too

    This is one of my favorite soups. I add a little tomato paste at the beginning and some greens at the end.

    Do you eat fish?

    Try this one of stuffed peppers with basmati rice, tuna(tinned), cooked sweetcorn and peas, and olive oil. Add a green salad of onions, cucumber, lettuce leaves, and plain yoghurt.

    Cook the rice as you scoop out the innards of two red peppers. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and season to taste. Then fill the peppers. Bake at two hundred Celsius until the skins just begin to blister and blacken. Serve with salad and any excess rice.

    You can replace the tuna with varieties of cooked beans or lentils, or different peppers and matching salads.

    It`s easy, quick, delicious, cheap, healthy, and filling.

    this is interesting. following this thread.

    On my say ,I do feel very much lighter in a sense overall well being, when I'm on complete veggie for a day or two...was thinking on having it on alternate days. there is no harm I see having them on.... prefer to focus on good/ quality vegetarian dishes.

    Legumes and rice supply the full complement of the needed amino acids. I could live on a mush made from lentils and brown rice.

    I have tried the pea protein. I can't drink that stuff. The taste is awful.

    Plain Greek style Yogurt, 0% fat. It has about 18 grams of protein per 175 grams of one serving. I love it icon_biggrin.gif

    Garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
    Garlic
    Salt
    Olive oil

    Blend them up and eat with pita bread, which is also vegan.
