Summer Vegetables With the Most Protein

8 Protein-Packed Summer Veggies

When you've taken on a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle, there's one question that constantly pops up: "Don't you need protein?" Of course you do! Lean meats certainly pack more protein per serving, but there are some tasty Summer veggies that also offer the much-needed nutrient. Since we're big believers in the power of eating what's in season, here are eight protein-packed vegetables we love to eat all Summer long.

  1. Cauliflower (three flowerets): 1 g
  2. Beets (one-half cup of slices): 1.4 g
  3. Collards (one-half cup): 1.8 g
  4. Green beans (one cup): 2.4 g
  5. Sweet corn (one small ear): 2.6 g
  6. Spinach (one-half cup): 2.7 g
  7. Artichokes (one medium): 4.2 g
  8. Portobello mushrooms (one-half cup sliced): 4.9 g

In need of a little more powerful protein inspiration? Here are 11 vegetarian-friendly protein sources and protein-packed workout snacks.
