I'm no so much interested in recipes, I have plenty of cookbooks, but in nutritional details of the manner in which various legumes, veggies, seeds, nuts, etc should be combined to produce a complete protein, and in what quantities. Secondarily, I'll take recipe ideas.

I realize that some people now believe that it is not necessary to consume all the essential amino acids at once. I'm not convinced of that. I browsed Barnes and Noble today and could not find a single cookbook in the vegetarian section that mentioned nutrition, except for the occasional pooh-poohing of a need for protein.

My goal here is to replace one dinner per week with a completely vegetarian protein source, and still have significant high-quality protein for a couple of athletes. (who are eating too much cheese and don't like tofu) Thanks!
