Hey. I think that I have some level of protein-deficiency, I'm due for a physical soon, so we'll see how bad it is then...but in the mean time, I'm ready to try some new recipes. I know people say that beans and tofu are good sources of protein, but I have no clue how to cook them. Does anyone have any good, very basic, high-protein recipies?

There is a recipe in the 'recipes' forum under " Main dishes--Other" Called BBQ tofu and polenta or something is SOOOO good and really easy. I make it all the time. Peanut butter sammiches are good... Hummus is high in protien and yummy in sandwiches and veggies. Boca Chick'n patties are my favorite right now... Fried up, on a whole wheat bun with a bunch of veggies... It tastes just like a chicken sandwich. Um.. also a tofu stir fry would be good... Just cube the tofu, and heat some sesame oil or vegetable oil plop in the tofu with some garlic, and some ginger... add veggies and soy sauce. Beans--- you can do a heck of a lot with beans. Refried bean burritos (w/ cheese if you're lacto) Bean tacos, Pinto beans and rice, throw some garbonzo's on your salad or 'mock tuna salad' (in the recipes forum) And when I'm lazy, I throw some refried beans in a bowl with some soy cheese, green onion, salsa, and avacadoes and eat it with tortilla chips. Hope this helps!

Seitan is really easy to prepare and very high in protein. Slice it up, heat it in a frying pan for a few minutes, and put some barbecue sauce on it. Put it on a burger bun, and voila! Quick, tasty, and high in protein.

Why do you think you have a protein deficiency?

Read this. I think you have some misconceptions about protein. It's very very hard to go protein deficient unless there's some other underlying cause/illness.
