It is a common myth that being a vegan means less protein. Vegetarians think that they can't have enough protein like non-vegetarians. Below are the foods which are the best sources of protein for vegetarian:


1. Tofu


A tasty alternative, this yummy food can add as much as 10 grams of protein per cup to your food. Besides the creamy texture that it lends to your food, it can also be made into desserts, and even gravy.


2. Beans


Easily available in the market, these beans are full with nutrients and antioxidants. A mere half cup of black, white and even red kidney beans, known as rajma, can contain up to eight grams of proteins. A good thing is that several Indian dishes can be easily prepared with beans.


3. Chickpeas


Another protein food that is easily available in the market, chickpeas or Kabuli chana, is high on protein. A 100 gram serving contains almost nine grams of protein. Sprouted chickpeas also contain beneficial amino acids like lysine, isoleucine, tryptophan and total aromatic amino acids.


4. Green Peas


The little green peas often served as a side dish contain 9 grams of protein per cooked cup (240 ml), which is slightly more than a cup of milk. Green peas are high in protein, vitamins and minerals and can be used as more than just a side dish.


5. Oats


Oats are an easy and delicious way to add protein to your diet. Half a cup (120 ml) of dry oats provides you with approximately 6 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber. Oats also contain good amounts of magnesium, zinc, phosphorus and folate.
