In brief: All essential aminos

Some Amino Acids can't be made from others in your body, and a complete protein is one you can live on -- it has plenty of each of these.
It's important for vegetarians to mix proteins to get enough of each amino acid; i respect vegetarianism if taken for moral reasons but it makes safe eating more complicated.
