Take a look at some vegetarian sources of protein
A 100 grams of raw soybean contains up to 36 grams of protein as per the USDA. The legume can thus fulfil up to 72% of the daily requirement of protein. You can use soybean in a number of ways, whether as a delicious Soya chaat or even a satiating soya curry.
2. Paneer or Cottage Cheese
One of the most-loved vegetarian ingredients, paneer has an immense fan following. The humble dairy product can contain up to 14 grams of protein in a 100 gram serving as per the USDA. Its versatile nature can make it fit for a whole range of toothsome dishes.
3. Chickpeas and lentils
A wholesome, fulfilling bowl of lentils or dal is all you need to get yourself your daily protein requirements, or so our mothers and grandmothers would say. Science backs their claims, as a single cup serving may have up to 18 grams of protein. Chickpeas are a great way to fulfil the protein requirement, with 39 grams of the nutrient in a single cup.
