The Best Vegan Sources of Protein

10 Ways Vegans Can Eat 10 Grams of Protein

When I became vegan after college, my mom flipped. "How are you going to get enough protein?" It's certainly hard when your family eats meat and dairy at just about every meal. But steak, cheese, and scrambled eggs aren't the only sources of protein out there. If you're avoiding meat, dairy, and eggs for ethical or health reasons, you can still get the protein you need each day. Here are some of the highest vegan sources of protein available.

  1. Arborio rice: cook half a cup for 12 grams
  2. Tempeh: 2 oz. offers 11.9 grams
  3. Extra firm tofu: 4 oz. equals 11.2 grams
  4. Cooked quinoa: 1 1/4 cup equals 11.1 grams
  5. Edamame: half-cup serving offers 11.1 grams
  6. Vanilla o'Soy yogurt: eat one and a half six-ounce containers (nine oz.) for a total of 10.5 grams
  7. Silk Plain Soymilk: 12 oz. offers 10.3 grams
  8. Kidney beans: 3/4 cup adds exactly 10 grams
  9. Tofu Pup: one-and-one-quarter links offers 10 grams
  10. Amy's Kitchen All American Veggie Burger: one patty offers 10 grams
