Plant based Omega-3

If you are vegetarian or vegan what foods do you eat or supplements do you take or what combination of both do you use to ensure you get enough Omega-3?

I eat hemp seeds.

Algae, Nuts and Seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds or walnuts

Vegetables and Fruits spinach, kale and collard greens, and cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli and cauliflower winter squash. One of the few fruits that contain more omega-3 than omega-6 fatty acid is papaya.
Legumes, kidney, pinto, soybeans.

Thanks for the list. I avoid soy and flax due to a health issue. I do eat pumpkin seeds and walnuts as well as plenty of vegetables and fruit. Interesting about papaya. Ideally I would like to get it from food rather than have to purchase an expensive supplement that I don't feel 100% comfortable with.
