We need complete proteins in our diet, but they do not need to come only from meats. These 7 Mouthwatering Complete Protein Vegetarian Recipes contain all the 9 essential amino acids.

What Are Complete Proteins? They are foods that contain all 9 essential amino acids in sufficient quantity for our bodies to function properly. We need complete proteins for optimal growth, development, and repair of the cells in our bodies.

You don’t need to be a carnivore to get all of your essential amino acids.

Complete proteins are not only found in the flesh of the animals. We can find them in other foods like quinoa, chia seeds, eggs, milk, yogurt, buckwheat, and Spirulina.

The recipes below include dairy and eggs. Many vegetarians include them in their diets, while abstaining from eating chicken, cows, pigs, fish and all animals.

It’s easy to get enough protein without eating animals.

So, if you are trying to cut down on your meat intake, you are going to love these 7 Mouthwatering Complete Protein Vegetarian Recipes. They are creative, healthy, and super family friendly.

7 Mouthwatering Complete Protein Vegetarian Recipes

1. Colorful Russian Style Quinoa Protein Power Salad


This salad is just perfect for lunch. Quinoa is one of only a few plant foods that are considered a complete protein. Just 1 cup provides 8 grams of protein. This recipe also has more complete protein with the addition of hard boiled eggs. Yum!

2. Best Breakfast Baked Avocado Eggs Recipe

best-breakfast-baked-avocado-eggs-recipe (1)

I love this recipe for breakfast. Eggs are full of complete protein and nutrition. Just one egg has about 6 grams of protein (depends of the size).  Combine it with the healthy fats in avocados and together, this recipe is full of goodness. It is super delicious too!

3. Smoothies With Chia Seeds or Spirulina


Spirulina is a blue-green micro algae considered one of the best and most nutrient rich superfoods. Chia seeds are also an excellent source of easily digestible plant based protein.  They both provide complete proteins. Just add a tablespoon of either one of them to your smoothies and enjoy. The recipe will show you how to make perfect smoothies.

4. Homemade Yogurt Melts


Homemade Yogurt Melts are easy to make and so delicious. Perfect treat for babies starting on solids, toddlers, kids and adults too! I recommend greek yogurt because it is made from a highly concentrated form of milk. Yogurt is a complete protein. “Greek yogurt has double the protein of most regular yogurts,” Bonnie Taub-Dix, a New York-based nutrition expert explained. “An 8-ounce cup has as much protein as a 3-ounce chicken cutlet!”

5. Healthy Vegetable Quinoa Pilaf Recipe

quinoa-pilaf-with-vegetables-2 (1)

Another great recipe using delicious quinoa. Super nutritious and healthy recipe that the entire family can enjoy. You can add your favorite vegetables if you want.  It is really easy to make and will be ready in 30 minutes or less.  Enjoy the health benefits of eating quinoa!

6. Easy Breezy Super Healthy Breakfast Egg Muffins


There is nothing better than starting the day with the right kind of foods. Easy Breezy Super Healthy Breakfast Egg Muffins are just perfect for the entire family. Just add your favorite veggies and enjoy a delicious complete protein vegetarian finger food.

7. Cheesy Zucchini Pie


Another great complete protein: cheese. Just one ounce of American, Mozzarella, Brie, cheddar, hard goat, bleu, Monterey and Swiss cheese contains about 7 grams of protein. This Cheesy Pie recipe has the perfect combination of veggies: delicious zucchini, sweet corn, onions, and fresh mushrooms! Love the sweet and salty combination with mozzarella cheese.
