Not too long ago a Dr. Gourmet fan said to me, "I really wish you would include photos with the recipes." She was talking about trying to visualize the instructions for how to chiffonade basil on one of the dishes on the Web site and said that she finally figured it out, but having pictures as a guide would be a big help.
This week we are trying something new at Dr. Gourmet: step by step recipes. This is not really revolutionary, but for us it is a lot more work and we're not Good Housekeeping or Cooking Light with a huge team of food stylists and photographers.
It is important to us, however, and what we want most is your feedback. We have always had people say nice things about how easy Dr. Gourmet recipes are to follow. We want to make that even easier and your comments are something we always take to heart and use to make the site better. Give us your feedback and win a copy of Hand on Heart

Eggs and dairy products are also complete proteins, but many vegetarians avoid both eggs and dairy.
The best strategy to get the complete set of amino acids is to combine two of grains, legumes or nuts and seeds. Vegetarian Protein
