What equals a complete protein, vegetarian-wise?

EWSflash | Mar 7, 2012 06:32 PM

I remember from way back in the day being told that beans and rice, or beans and corn equaled a complete protein chain and therefore are a perfect substitute for meat. Food knowledge is so much more advanced now, I'm wondering if anybody here can tell me what various combinations of vegetable proteins form a complete chain- or IF they do.
