10 Protein-Packed Vegan Entrées


Vegans and vegetarians alike are asked this question far too many times: “Where do you get your protein?” Little do those who question know, herbivores get protein from a variety of plant-based sources. Here are 10 protein-packed vegan entrees for you to make and wow your meat-eating friends in the process:


1. Roasted Acorn Squash Stuffed with Quinoa Mushroom Pilaf

Quinoa is a superfood packed with protein. Try it stuffed in roasted acorn squash.

Lentils have one of the highest amounts of protein in any legume or nut. Fall in love with these red lentil burgers.

3.  Falafel Tacos

Because falafels are made from chickpeas, they are high in protein, complex carbohydrates, and fiber. This recipe is a spin-off of traditional tacos.

4. Raw Zucchini Pasta with Creamy Avocado-Cucumber Sauce

This dish contains an avocado-cucumber sauce. Avocados provide us with some protein, giving us some of the essential amino acids we need.
