I'm not super worried about protein intake, but I definitely would like to have a little! My issue is, Im allergic to both tree nuts and peanuts. So, Im guessing I should be eating a lot of seeds!<br><br>
I already eat/love fake nut butters like sunflower seed butter, pea butter, and soy butter but that has a lot of fat and it doesn't really work for salads!<br><br>
I generally don't eat seeds because I have a hard time finding ones that don't have the "contains traces of nuts" etc label. I guess right now is a great time to go buy some pumpkins and not only eat yummy pumpkin, but also stock up on pumpkin seeds, eh?<br><br>
So are there any other vegan/vegetarian non-nut eaters out there? What do you eat instead and most importantly, where do you buy nut safe seeds?<br><br>
Thanks so much!

I don't (and probably never will) do canned baked beans, and I've never really eaten any other kinds of beans or lentils. Thats actually how I found this website - searching for recipes to try with those ingredients! So I am interested in trying them..I'm not overly picky, I'm sure it'll just be a matter of learning how to cook them and eat them.<br><br>
Thank you for replying so quickly!

Beans and lentils are AWESOME when cooked right <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Do you like curries? I have a good recipe for lentil loaf too.<br><br><a href="http://www.food.com/recipe/really-good-vegetarian-meatloaf-really-33921" target="_blank">http://www.food.com/recipe/really-go...f-really-33921</a><br><br><br><br>
Red Lentil-Cauliflower Curry<br>
From Veganomicon<br><br><br>
* 3 tablespoons grapeseed or peanut oil<br>
* 1 large onion, chopped<br>
* 1 chile pepper (Jalapeno or serrano), minced<br>
* 2 large Shallots<br>
* 1 piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated (about 1/2 inch, or use a little powdered ginger)<br>
* 1 large parsnip, peeled and chopped (or carrot)<br>
* 2 teaspoons curry powder<br>
* 1/2 teaspoon turmeric<br>
* 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon<br>
* 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin<br>
* 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander<br>
* 1 1/2 cups red lentils, sorted and rinsed<br>
* 4 cups vegetable stock<br>
* 1 1/2-2 lbs cauliflower, trimmed and sliced into small florets (about 1 medium head)<br>
* 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped<br>
* 2 tablespoons lime juice<br>
* 1 1/2 teaspoons salt<br><br><br>
1. Have all the ingredients prepped and ready to go. Heat the oil in a stockpot over medium heat. Add the onion and shallot, cook about 5-7 minutes, until translucent. Add the grated ginger and chile, cook 1 minute. Add the spices and cook for 30 seconds, stirring constantly, then add the parsnip and cook another minute.<br><br>
2. Pour in the vegetable stock and then the lentils. Cover the pot, raise the heat to high and allow to boil for 1 minute. Stir, cover the pot and lower heat to medium-low. Simmer the lentils for 10 minutes or until yellow and mushy,.<br><br>
3. Add the cauliflower florets and stir to ensure they are evenly coated. Partially cover and simmer for 20 minutes, until cauliflower is tender but not mushy. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro, lime juice and salt. Let the curry sit, covered, for about 15 minutes before serving.<br><br><br>
You can serve it with Roti (recipe in book), with another type of bread (naan ), or over rice.

Thanks!<br><br>
I do really like curries, that recipe looks delicious! I will have to try it.<br><br>
I do like chickpeas as well. I never even thought about throwing those in salad!

Chickpeas are yummy in salad. There's a recipe in Veganomicon that calls for them on salad:<br><br><br><img alt="" src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2153/2182014739_41aaffc0e4.jpg" style="border:0px solid;">
