Broccoli has a good amount of protein. Not sure if it's the same as other types of protein (aka: meat, dairy, ect...). Usually the carbs and protein are equal on broccoli. For example, if you have _oz of broccoli, and it has 10g carbs it'll have 10g protein. That's just what I've noticed from using calorie king . com. What about cottage cheese? Natural peanut butter?

Tofu is the **** man. Make some vegan chili and you'll be in heaven.

Cottage cheese, yogurt, rice, beans, peanut butter and cheese are all high in protein.

Broccoli has a good amount of protein.
2 grams of protein per cup. Hell, cooked white rice has 4 grams per cup. You'd have to eat 15 cups of broccoli to equal the protein in one can of tuna. Being vegetarian makes it so hard to get adequate protein needs. Anyway, you can get some basic nutrition data from the following link (food search upper right):

enjoy your tofu/beans/nuts/cheese, you're going to need to eat a lot of this stuff.

Beans, couscous, some whole grains, MILK, there are actually a lot of things that have a lot of protein that are veggie friendly. I would avoid soy proteins (like tofu) though as they are estrogenic and can cause things like gyno. The menopause medicines you see advertised on TV are made from soy, just to give you an idea of how estrogenic they can be.

Beans and things are great foods, not disputing that. Only problem is that they do contain the full chain of amino acids so if you're a vegetarian I would recommend consuming alot of eggs and egg whites and dairy in addition to your beans etc to get full benefits.

I'm assuming you meant they DO NOT have the full chain AAs. You should drink milk with every meal if you are a veggie imo. This negates that problem entirely (as plant proteins are almost ALL incomplete).
