The 6 Veggies with Most Protein

Vegetables aren't typically known for being a great source of protein, but there are some sneaky ones out there that contain a decent amount.

Something important to keep in mind: Plant proteins are 'incomplete' proteins, meaning they don't contain all of the essential amino acids. To make sure you get the different types of amino acids you need, make sure to combine these veggies with whole grains

Peas
Each half-cup contains three and a half grams of protein. 

Spinach
You'll find three grams of protein in a half cup of spinach.

Baked Potato
Another stealth source of protein? Potatoes! A medium-sized one contains three grams. 

Broccoli
Broccoli's not just filled with fiber (2.6 grams per half cup)—it's also a great source of protein, with two grams per serving. 
  
Brussels Sprouts
These little green guys get a bad rap, but they're actually nutritional superstars: Each half cup packs two grams of protein, along with 247 milligrams of potassium and 110 micrograms of vitamin K. 
 
Corn
OK, we know that corn is technically a grain. But you can find it in the produce aisle—and you'll be glad to know that half a cup of kernels provides two grams of filling protein.
