5 protein-packed veggies

Here are 5 high-protein veggies to enjoy regularly while inspiring your quest for a vibrant, plant-powered life.1. Sprouted Beans and Lentils: 4.6g per ½ cup (1g/100g protein) What can you do with sprouts? Eat them-in wraps, on salads, as a snack, cook them into soups or mix in raw. A heap of nutrition gets packed into these tiny sprouts, including loads of enzymes and minerals in addition to their high level of protein. New to sprouting? Veestro has you covered, learn how here!2. Lima Beans: 6g protein per 1 cup protein (6.8g/100g)Lima beans are treated like veggies even though they are legumes. They make delicious recipes and mix well with spices, herbs, rice, peas, carrot, broccoli, chili peppers, onion, tomato and corn. Try adding them to your favorite soups, salads, stir-fries, stews and casseroles.veestro foods beet and kale salad.jpg3. Green Peas: 9g protein per 1 cup (5.4g/100g)Green peas, or “garden peas” are seeds from pods of a legume plant, but are most often consumed as starchy veggies. Green peas add a flavor pop to many plant-based dishes. Have you tried Veestro’s Latin Stew, Muschroom Risotto, or Beluga Lentil Braise yet?4. Succotash (corn and lima beans): 7g protein per 1 cup (5.1g/100g)If anything, saying the word succotash is a blast! It simply means “boiled corn kernels with lima beans.” Combining corn with beans results in a dish that is high in all essential amino acids-the ones our bodies cannot produce on their own. You can get creative by adding in tofu and tomatoes for an incredible plant-based dish.5. Kale: 7g protein per cup (4.3g/100g)So, how did kale get to be so cool? Not long ago, salads were made of iceberg lettuce and now kale Caesar salads are the “it” food on many menus.  The reality is that kale is nothing new. It has been cultivated around the world for over 2,000 years and it’s still among the most nutrient dense foods on the planet. If you haven’t yet tried Veestro’s Kale and Quinoa Salad  or Roasted Beet and Kale Salad, now’s the time to “get your kale on!”  Source: https://www.healthaliciousness.com/articles/vegetables-high-in-protein.php#protein-percentage
