So I recently discovered that plain old peas, the kind most Americans already eat on a regular basis, are a pretty good protein source. I find it very odd this one rarely comes up in conversation around here when helping newbies find good protein sources to eat instead of meat.

Does anyone know the protein content of peas? I'm assuming they're not a complete protein. What other types of things would be good to complement them? Bread maybe?

http://www.nutritiondata.com/foods-p...000000000.html that's the main page since there's so many types and preparations of peas (each type and preparation affecting the nutritional value).

Garlic mashed potatoes - heavy on the garlic. Yum.

the whole thing about plant sources not being a complete protein is kinda a myth
