Vegan Foods That Have More Protein Than Egg

It’s true. There are  vegetarian foods that are better source of protein than an egg. There can be multiple reasons why you would like to opt for vegetarian foods. Maybe you dislike the smell of an egg or you are a vegetarian or maybe you want to prove an egg freak wrong about building body with vegetarian food. Whatever your reason, today you will finally be able to get rod of egg myth from your head. So without further ado, lets begin.


Yes, that Arabic dip that you get in any Middle Eastern restaurant. It’s made up of beans, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic. It’s as healthy as it gets. A typical egg will provide you with nearly 6g of protein. A half cup of hummus provides your body with almost 10 g of protein which is almost twice more than an egg, and is a lot tastier as well!

Black beans

Black beans or ‘kala ghevada’ as we know it is the black coloured beans which are a high source of antioxidants and fibre. A cup of black peas provide nearly 15g of protein.

Peanut butter

Made up of peanut (obviously) is another source of protein and provides you with an alternative to egg. Two tablespoons give 8g of protein, still a lot more than an egg.


My favourite. Made of paneer or cheese, a delicious alternative to eggs. It gives you 10g of protein in a cup.

Chick peas

‘Chana’ as we know them are also a great source of protein and give 15g of protein per cup. Tastes a lot better than eggs any time of the day.

Pumpkin seeds

‘Kaddu’ even though means nothing at times, has a lot more protein than an egg. 30g of serving gives you 9g of protein. Whoa, even ‘kaddu’ is richer source of protein than eggs. Bet you didn’t know that.

So, there you have it. A list of few vegetarian foods which will give you more protein than an egg. The list goes on to even further. But I will stop here to let you digest this new information. Now you know, eggs are not the only great source of protein. Vegetables defeat egg anytime of the day.
