About this Article

Protein is the bugaboo of the vegetarian diet. The most common question I hear, tinged with anxiety, is: "Where do you get your protein?" The thing is, protein comes from many more plant-based sources than you might think. It's not just from tofu, tempeh, beans and seeds. The category that home cooks seem to forget all too easily is that of whole grains.
