Can grains and legumes be eaten at separate meals to get their full protein complement?

I don't eat a lot of meat. I'm always combining grains and legumes because their combination gives you the protein your body needs.
In his new book "Eat & Run," ultramarathoner Scott Jurek says you can eat, for instance rice at one meal and beans at another and still get all the protein. In other words, they don't have to be consumed at the same meal.
I don't have any reason to doubt Mr. Jurek but I'm just double-checking, is this true?
