Hey everyone!

Got a delicious vegan, high protein recipe to share? Feel free to post it here! I think it is so fun to swap healthy recipes and get new ideas to switch up my diet a little!

Here are some of my favorites to start:

Tofu Scramble (I make 1/2 of a 15 ounce container - 16 grams of protein):

Chickpea Nuggets (kind of like chicken nuggets - 26.8 grams of protein per serving):

Protein Pancakes (I use oat flour for this one and eat ALL of the pancakes it makes - 30 grams of protein!):

Chocolate Chia Protein Pudding (I use plain Promix powder, but it still turns out great! -30 grams of protein):

    Thanks for sharing! I've bookmarked this so when I get home tonight I can pull out my vegan Italian sausage recipe to share - 13g protein in one sausage! (If you like faux meats)

    Just found this group and am psyched! Been looking for and making high protein dishes for a couple months now to reach my fitness goals. Would love to add some vegan sausage to my rotation

    I completely forgot about this! I'm at work, but I'm emailing myself a reminder for later tonight!

    Okay so this isn't exactly "healthy" per se, but it's definitely vegan and filling and full of protein (19g): https://minimalistbaker.com/vegan-roasted-red-pepper-pasta-gf/

    I also tend to use a lot of Linda Macartney vegan sausages - 212 kcals and 25g protein for three. Would defo love a homemade recipe though!

    thank you for starting this thread... I am new to vegan... however I have not been a red meat eater for over 35 years.. I was occasionally having chicken but it grosses me out now.. and do not eat eggs.. very rarely eat seafood.. and supposed to stay away from soy... so eating is becoming a challlenge for me.. I am seeing so much about nutritional yeast... must look into the benefits of this.. thanks again.. some recipes are going to be tried this week

    Indonesian Tempeh. Traditional recipes call for deep frying but if you are counting calories toss in oil and air fry. If you don't have an air fryer, cook on a rack in a convection oven at high temperature.

    Is bumping allowed here? I'm going to try high protein food for my winter weight struggle, instead of my normal high carb habit.

    I make this Greek chickpea lentil salad all the time. I add a splash of olive juice for flavor. I'm not vegan, so I tend to combine it with feta, Greek yogurt, and dill then wrap it in an Xtreme Wellness whole wheat tortilla. I'm sure there's a vegan alternative to the dairy.
