One of the most common questions asked of vegans is, "Where do you get your protein?" We get pure protein from a variety of sources, all without cholesterol: legumes, beans, nut butters, sprouts, grains (quinoa is especially high in it), and on and on. Soy can also be a source but it... is not necessary to eat soy to get adequate protein as a vegan, nor do we have to be overly concerned with amino acid combining (an old notion) to make sure we get enough. A delicious bowl of lentil soup with multigrain bread is a simple, protein-rich light meal.
