There are a lot of good cheap food sources that vegetarians like and use. However, I actually know of someone who quit being a vegetarian because they thought it was too expensive! I think vegetarians like anyone else have to watch their budget.
Beans and eggs are good cheap sources of protein for vegetarians and flexitarians alike. We both have to watch our intake of nuts, but they are good for us, and worth putting in our plan, if we possibly can.
I think that there are a lot of specialty vegetarian items that are expensive, and vegetarians like anyone else need to be careful about what they buy. Cheese tends to be more expensive than the cheaper cuts of meat.
Vegans have it really tough. I hear that not even all soy milk is vegan now.
Regular milk is cheaper. Budget-wise, the best choice is probably to go flexitarian, Eat a lot of vegetarian meals, but don't limit yourself to strictly vegetarian.
