10 Protein Packed Meals For Vegetarians

You don't need to eat meat to cover your daily requirement for protein. Here is a list of such amazing protein packed meals you can make within few minutes and without any hassle.

Crispy Quinoa Fritters

Quinoa fritters are a great thing to make during the week because they're easy, generally quick, and reheat really well. Quinoa is such a great staple for vegetarians. One serving (a 1/4 cup) has 15% of your daily iron, 6g of protein and a good amount of fibre.

buckwheat risotto

I can not begin to explain in words how divine this dish is. It does take a little elbow grease and uses some ingredients that may not be an every day pantry staple. But it is unquestionable worth the effort. The earthy, meaty portobello mushrooms nestle on top of the creamy buckwheat risotto and are bought together in a glorious finish with tangy goats curd... and of course, who could forget the truffle oil. Sigh.

Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seeds have gotten a lot of buzz lately for their health benefits and ease of use. The tiny little seeds look a bit like exotic black and white swirled eggs from up close. They absorb lots of liquid and turn very gelatinous. They have a neutral flavor and while they cost a bit more than other seeds, it doesn’t take many to create an interesting effect.

Roasted Stuffed Peppers

These are SO juicy, and I have definite tummy satisfaction afterwards. Also knowing that they had only come to 215 calories was even better! (If you've been saving all your calories for an evening meal, you could eat all of these for 430 calories and have yourself a 40 calorie hot chocolate afterwards!)

roasted red pepper hummus with garlicky pita chips

Are you in need for a simple and fast, yet elegant appetizer? If yes, then Roasted Red PepperHummus with Garlicky Pita Chips is the perfect solution. This hummus dip requires only a slight bit of chopping and a food processor. The pita chips are quickly tossed in a garlicky olive oil mixture and bakes in less than 15 minutes. Not only is this a delicious dip, but healthy too! Chickpeas are legumes that are also called garbanzo beans and are an excellent source of fiber and protein

Soba Noodles with Peanut Dressing, Cucumbers and Scallions

This salad can be tailored to your liking and additions such as carrots and bean sprouts and chicken offer substance, making it a one-bowl meal that takes minutes to prepare and tastes both satisfying and refreshing especially when the temperatures start dipping into the upper 80’s and 90’s.

Buckwheat Hemp Pesto Pizza

It’s a life changing gluten free recipe which would work with most flours. I went with millet and buckwheat, both deliciously nutty in flavour. Thick, spreadable, totally unique in flavour, it got two thumbs up from me! I’m totally in love with hemp seeds at the moment; they’ve such a unique flavour as well as being incredibly nutritious.
