Best for soups: Lentils

Lentils are another good base for your veggie burgers if you’re trying to skip the soybeans. One cup gives you 18 grams of filling protein along with 16 grams of digestive-boosting fiber. You can opt for a lentil chili instead of a meat one, or skip the meat in your next curry dish and just add lentils. If you’re a vegetarian but not a vegan, you can opt for a cheesy lentil enchilada bake instead of a meat one (of course vegans can make it too, with a nut-based cheese).
