I've tried the black bean hummus recipe. The garlic is a little overwhelming. Try with one clove instead.

Interesting slideshow--I love most of the foods listed...though I'm not sure about the protein content of some of them. But I am not a nutritionist.

WILL, I've tried the Manitoba Harvest hemp powder (in Canada, don't know if it's available elsewhere). It's definitely an acquired taste. I just go with plain, because it's already processed enough, I don't need to added ingredient to flavour it especially since I am usually mixing it with other flavourful things. Right now I am trying pumpkin seed protein powder. Those are the only two I have tried since it takes me forever to go through a container.

I also ate at an Egytian restaurant recently and tried their Fava Bean hummus. It was the best hummus I have ever had. I tried cooking fava beans from dried and it was a lot of work, shelling the beans, but I have to say. well worth the effort.

my favorite for black beans is to make a dip with chipotle powder (or chipotle in adobo sauce) - delicious, and mix with salsa and salad makings for an outstanding taco salad, or stuff in a tortilla with spinach and heat up - yum!

Ren - try the raw collards as wraps. If you can get the really big nice leaves they roll up really well. If you don't like how stiff they are you can steam them first to get a little more pliable.

Tory - here is a link to a black bean hummus recipe I found in Spark Recipes. recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai

I would imagine you can play with the flavors just like regular hummus.

Great slide show! I already eat most of these on a daily basis, so I've stopped worring about protein. I've got to try a back bean hummus and raw collards.

One thing- there is a worry about too much protein. It can cause tumor growth that can lead to cancer.

I tr to keep it under 20% of my calories from protein per day. Ususally I'm in the 7-10% range which is abut what the body needs.

I also like black bean hummis, and in fact have been wanting for a long time to experiment with hummus using other beans besides garbonzos, since I seem to like black bean better than regular hummis.

I "tried" to use hemp protein powder, but ended up wasting my money on it. It was gritty and had a "muddy" taste to it. It worked okay in a chocolate smoothie, but not much of anything else...so I ended up not using it much. (And if one isn't gonna use something, it's a waste of money. Best for me to try to find a protein source I like and would use.)

The slideshow was a good one---thanks!

Will - Trader Joes has a nice hemp protein. It's a little gritty as most of them are. It's a cheap one that you can try to see if you like the taste. I'm sure Whole Foods has some too.

Thanks for posting this! Seeing people constantly worrying about how they're going to get enough protein if they go vegan, it's nice to see something that shows we can get plenty without having to resort to protein shakes and powders and other processed stuff.

My favorites include: avocado, steel cut oats (with blueberries, YUM), black beans, broccoli, spinach, chickpeas (hummus is my favorite spread!) and peas :) I try to get as much protein from veggies as I can!

I've not tried hemp powder---pea protein seems to be the new darling of vegan protein powders these days.

Regarding the powder, I've used soy protein powder but never hemp. Does anyone recommend a nice brand of hemp powder?

LOVELY! Couscous is one of my favorites, as a good low fat, low calorie source, which makes it a good choice over other protein sources, especially if you want variety. You can have it hot. You can also make a nice couscous salad. That is what I had for lunch today. I also like using it to stuff a pita pocket with lettuce, olives, cucumbers, and onions.
