How to get 30 grams of protein in a vegan meal?
Protein is found in most whole plant foods in varying concentrations. It’s always important to balance your meals and include all food groups to get the nutrients you need.
To increase the protein content in a meal, you can incorporate high-protein grains like amaranth or quinoa. Additionally, I recommend adding legumes to your meal.
You can also use pasta made from legumes, such as chickpea pasta or lentil pasta, as each of these choices provides a substantial amount of protein to your meal.
Lastly, the most significant protein sources come from tofu, tempeh, TVP, or seitan.
If that sounds too challenging, I’ve done the work for you!
Below are recipes that contain over 30g of protein, so you can simply follow the instructions.
