    What is a vegan protein I can put on a sandwich?

    I've only recently started adopting the vegan diet, but I'm still sort of stumbling my way through it. One of my favorite things when I ate meat was a sandwich. But I'm not a huge fan of the imitation lunch meat made with tofu. What is something else, that is high in protein, that I could throw on a sandwich?

    Aside from eating no animal products, the vegan diet is designed for us to eat less protein as well because too much protein is very hard on our organs.  The amount of protein our body actually needs is quite low, contrary to popular belief.

    Nonetheless, tofu (8 grams per serving), beans (12-14 grams per cup), lentils (18 grams per cup), hemp seeds (6 grams per ounce), tempeh (18 grams per serving), even grains like barley, wheat, brown rice and even corn contain protein.

    Renegadetory gave some good ideas!

    You can also buy or make some bean spread, that is really delicious on bread and sandwiches.

    I really like a hummus, lettuce, tomato and cucumber sandwich.  You could add sprouts or anything else you like to it.
    If you like mushrooms, a roasted portobella mushroom sandwich is another option.
    There is always the old go to peanut butter and banana.
    I go to a veg. restaurant that serves the best tempeh rueben sandwich.
    Hope these are useful.
    I think I'll go make a sandwich.  I'm hungry. smile

    Both great lunches with protein and vegan smile

    Beans are a great source of protein in a vegan diet.

    Peanut butter is an old stand-by, but nowadays you can get different kinds of nut butters which are even healthier, like almond butter. All nut butters are high in protein. There's a coconut spread called kaya that originated from Malaysia, I believe. Not sure if it's high in protein but it's absolutely scrumptious. Coconut is one of the healthiest foods in the world.

    Contrary to what some will say about protein, it is a building block of the body and extremely important. You could make black bean or lentil burgers. Just google recipes for these.  wink

    Have you tried edamame? Edamame has a lot of protein in it. There are organic protein drinks out there as well. I would look at your local organic store.
