If you are vegan, chances are you are used to the endless comments judging your dietary choices. A classic one is when people question where vegans get their protein, so here are some meal options to prove to everyone that vegan protein is easy and delicious. 

Lentil Bolognese

Bolognese with pasta or spaghetti is always a winning combo. To make a healthy, delicious, and high-protein vegan version, just swap the minced meat for green lentils. You can soak dried ones, or just use the canned version for extra simplicity. The texture replicates the mince but is more interesting and flavorful. 

Tofu Scramble

If you’re looking for an easy yet delicious vegan lunch, then scrambling tofu instead of eggs is an ideal way to add some protein. Just mixing up tofu with flavorings is as simple as scrambling eggs, and produces an equally delicious and balanced meal. 

Edamame Salad

You can usually buy frozen edamame beans, which just need defrosting overnight before using. These beans are incredible, as they’re high in protein and work in so many contexts. For example, try a salad of quinoa, edamame, avocado, cashew nuts, and red cabbage for a delicious and high-protein vegan meal.
