The 20 Highest Protein Veggies (And Other Plant-Based Foods) You Can Eat

12. Organic Corn

Protein: 2.5 g per ½ cup serving

Just like the potatoes, organic corn is often categorized as “a plant having no redeeming qualities” but in reality it is packed up with legumes and rich amount of protein that can easily make a delicious protein packed plant dish.

Pick frozen varieties, organic or non GMO fresh ones, though the most conventional corn is the genetically modified one. Try it as sweet corn and butternut squash succotash.

13. Cashews

Proteins: 5 g per ¼ cup serving

Additionally having a delicate protein punch, cashews contain 12% of your recommended Vitamin K intake and 20% of your recommended daily magnesium intake. Both are bone building nutrients.

14. Pumpkin Seeds

Proteins: 5 g per ¼ cup serving

Apart from being a highly convenient way of getting a satisfying dose of protein, the pumpkin seeds are the powerhouses of different nutrients.

They are packed with half of your recommended intake of magnesium, accompanied by zinc which helps in boosting up the immune system, tryptophan and plant based omega 3-s that help you relax.
