I'm gradually reducing animal products but struggle a bit because im allergic to some beans and my child is allergic to nuts.
I can eat pulses like lentils but can you all give me some ideas of protein things thst arent nuts or beans that we can eat together.

Yes I sympathise, is he allergic to ALL nuts including almonds? I can eat those with no problems. I get bad reactions to cashews and brazils, oh and coconut and chickpeas blow me out. Not terrible though!

I like cannellini beans, They're lovely in a homemade dip.

Yeast flakes|and marmite of course are very high in protein I use them as stock in veg. soups, all green veg have protein (most of us forget that). Of course tofu is good but it is bean. I only eat organic tofu though.

Seitan (vital wheat gluten) can be made into various meat substitutes, lots of recipes to should be plenty without the nuts/beans that are a problem. There is vegan Quorn as well.

Peanut butter is my go to ingredient for a lot of things! I put it in brownies, make lovely dressings with it and have it with toast or ryvita and olive oil plus salad for lunch. It's also high in protein. I only eat Meridian organic Pnut butter it has no sugar or palm oil in it.

You can marinate medium tofu, cut in long cubes, then fry or bake gently and add the pnut dressing to it afterwards.

These sound tasty.

Yes very YUM Grass grin You make the dressing with lime/lemon juice, olive oil and use tofu yoghurt if you want to for extra creaminess.
