The main function of protein is to build and repair muscles and tissues. Proteins help make up enzymes, hormones, hair, skin, nails, muscles, and even our blood. Proteins are made up of building blocks called amino acids. There are 22 different amino acids that can be combined in different ways to create different types of proteins with different functions in the body.
In plants, proteins and their individual amino acids exist in a variety of sources. Old ideas about protein combining and complementary proteins were debunked years ago. Each plant food has a unique amino acid profile, so diversity in the diet is important to accessing these building blocks for protein. Overall, however, protein is found in all plant foods and sufficient protein is provided by a plant-based diet.
For example, a four-ounce piece of tenderloin steak contains about 23 grams of protein. In comparison, a cup of cooked black beans has 15 grams, and a double serving of broccoli has 8 grams.
The USDA guidelines state that the recommended dietary allowance for protein for women is 52 grams a day and 63 grams a day for men. Keep in mind that every person is unique, as are their life circumstances, health conditions, and dietary needs, so individual requirements will vary from person to person.
In an upcoming unit, you will learn to cook with plant-based sources of protein, but for now, here is a chart for your reference that shows the best plant-based sources of protein. Remember, this chart is assessable, so make sure you read and understand it thoroughly.

Beans and Legumes
Whole beans and Legumes can be building blocks of a healthy diet. Not only are they full of vitamins and nutrients, but there is plenty of research to support the fact that whole grains help to prevent disease, control weight, and aid in digestion.

Nuts and Seeds
Put gastronomic imagination on your dishes using nuts and seeds. It is important that, apart from the delicious food and sweets, nuts also have nutritional benefits.
They are characterized by many as magical foods as you can both save them and use them directly in cooking. It is also possible to consume nuts as a kind of healthy snack when you are hungry. Nutritionally they are high in protein, antioxidants and omega 3. However, their excessive consumption can load you with calories. These Vegan Protein Snacks are a must in any gathering.

Tofu & Seitan
Tofu -> Extra-firm tofu is appropriate for grilling and pan-frying applications, while silken tofu works well in creamy sauces, desserts, and dressings. In addition to tofu, there are a number of other soy products that are used in the plant-based kitchen, such as yuba (tofu skin), okara (soy pulp), dehydrated tofu, and fermented smelly tofu. The ideas below are mainly using Firm Tofu.
Seitan -> Seitan has been featured on Chinese, Japanese, and Vietnamese menus for hundreds of years, traditionally being used as a meat substitute in the Buddhist diet. Today, it has also become a staple protein for macrobiotic eating. Seitan is made from gluten, the main protein found in wheat—and not surprisingly, it is sometimes called “wheat meat.”

Nuts and Seeds
Perhaps the most widespread use of nuts in gastronomy. Hazelnut, grated nut, and almonds are an ideal complement to chocolate sweets or pastry sweets. Another case you can use is for garnish in ice creams. For example, add a little grated hazelnut to ice cream, you can give spicy tone to your dessert snacks.
