Vegetarian Protein

How do vegetarians get protein in their diets? From the following sources:

• Nuts: hazels, brazils, almonds, cashews, walnuts, pine kernels etc.

• Seeds: sesame, pumpkin, sunflower, linseeds. 

• Pulses: peas, beans, lentils, peanuts. 

• Grains/cereals: wheat (in bread, flour, pasta etc), barley, rye, oats, millet, maize (sweet corn), rice. 

• Soya products: tofu, tempeh, textured vegetable protein, veggie burgers, soya milk.

• Dairy products: milk, cheese, yoghurt (butter and cream are very poor sources of protein). 

• Free range eggs.
