Here is one possible example of an *actual* high-protein vegan meal: 4 ounces of scrambled tofu with chopped veggies and 2 ounces of soy sausage 4 ounces of orange juice with a large scoop of isolated soy protein 2 small rice cakes OR 1/3 cup of oatmeal OR 1/2 slice bread 8 ounces of soy milk in cafe latte or as chocolate 'milk' 1 cup of black tea or herb tea

The recipes don't list how much protein there is per serving - nor how many calories. Every recipe should list basic nutritional information. Especially if it's being presented as "protein packed" or high in protein. Does each serving contain at least 20 grams of protein? If not, then it's not really a high protein meal. Even 20 grams of protein per meal is not "high protein" -- it's just 1/3 of the recommended minimum daily intake of protein. For it to be truly a "high-protein" meal, it should have at least 30 or 40 grams of protein per serving. (Or more, for male athletes in sports that depend on muscle mass; they often need to consume 200 grams of protein or more, per day.) And for those who need to watch their weight, each serving should contain no more than 300 calories. Most vegan recipes are either way too low in protein, or else way too high in calories; often both. Including virtually every recipe that I've ever seen posted at the One Green Planet website/blog/page.

I would have really liked to see more that didn't have soy, but there are a couple we are going to try.
