Hi, I'm Devra Gartenstein with Quirky Gourmet, and today I'm going to talk to you about vegetarian foods that are rich in protein. Now there's a common misconception that vegetarians can't possibly get enough protein without meat but actually there are all kinds of common everyday foods that have plenty of protein. Now seitan, it's a vegetarian meat substitute. It's made from gluten flour, so wheat gluten or vital wheat gluten. I make my own. It's really very easy to make, people think it's difficult. You just mix up the gluten flour with some water and then dump it in some boiling water, you know, just make clumps and put it in the water, cook it for about 45 minutes, 31 grams of protein in a three ounce serving. Now black beans, one cup of cooked black beans has 15 grams of protein. Now tofu which is made from soybeans, these are little cubes of tofu, tofu takes on the flavor of whatever you cook it with, four ounces of tofu has eleven grams of protein. Now peas, you think common peas, how much protein can they have, one cup of peas has nine grams of protein. Peanut butter, two tablespoons of peanut butter has eight grams of protein and broccoli, yes a vegetable, has eight grams of protein in one cup of cooked broccoli. So you see, you really can get plenty of protein with a vegetarian diet and you're limited really only by your imagination.
