Protein-Packed Vegetarian Recipes

Vegetarians need protein, too, and we’ve collected some of our best high-protein vegetarian recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Meat-free proteins are easy to prepare, making them ideal for every diet, any day of the week.

These recipes focus on beans, tofu, tempeh and whole grains and pulses to create satisfying, full-flavored meals. While stir-fries and chili are common meatless options, we’ve gone beyond the basics to include spicy curries, flavorful pastas and even tacos.

Making use of ancient grains is a great way to bump up the protein on any healthy vegetarian recipe. Nutty quinoa and hearty KAMUT® khorasan wheat are both good options that are easy to find on store shelves these days. Don’t forget about the power of beans and lentils as well — these budget-friendly options are great in a variety of high protein vegetarian recipes.
