It’s not too difficult to find high protein vegan snacks, but it can be tricky to find good dinner recipes that are high in protein.
Lucky for you, I have a bunch.
I’ve put together a list of 7 of the best high protein vegan dinner recipes that I know of, but you can find more by going to my massive list of high protein vegan recipes and filtering just for “meals”.
This vegan chili is as good or better than any chili I had before I went vegan.
It’s one of the few chili recipes that incorporates lentils, which have a great nutritional profile, packed with protein.
Some might consider this a breakfast recipe, but I’ve eaten it multiple times for dinner. It has enough other veggies on top of the tofu that it’s filling and has a good amount of protein.
I’m not sure calling it “creamy white sauce” is the best visualization, but this is one of the best high protein pasta recipes I’ve come across, and it tastes great as well.
To make it you’ll need vegan sausages, usually made from vital wheat gluten, and unfortunately pretty expensive. But once in a while, it’s a great dinner.
Seitan is probably the king of vegan protein sources, it’s macros beat pretty much any protein, including animal sources.
This is a nice light salad with a nice dose of protein.
This is another delicious seitan recipe with a curry flavor.
Just a heads up, you will probably want to pair it with rice or noodles for a more hearty meal.
Tofu is one of my go-to ingredients for high protein meals, and having it with zucchini keeps the overall calories low, but the protein high.
Finally, we have breaded tofu steaks, which taste amazing.
The coating consists of a bunch of ingredients, but mainly things like flaxseed and spice powders, so you’re not adding any empty calories.
I’d suggest putting this in a wrap or on rice to make a more filling dinner meal.
That’s the end of this list. You can check out the giant list of recipes I linked to in the intro, or see my list of high protein vegan tofu recipes for more meal ideas.
