Some people think that you can not get enough protein on a vegan diet, especially if you are building your body. On the other hand, others beleive that it is possible to get all the protein you need, but vegan dishes are more complicated and take up too much time to be convenient. Thus I present to you, “The Kick”.
1/2 Yellow Onion
1/2 Yellow Pepper
1 Can of Romano Beans
Salt and Pepper
Sesame Seeds (1/2 cup)
- Heat some canola oil in a medium pan, chop the onion, and then add it in the pan with salt and pepper when oil is ready.
- Chop the yellow pepper and toss it in with about a third of a cup of basil. When the pepper colour starts to fade and the onion becomes translucent, add the strained beans with more of all three seasoning. Taste to see how much more you need.
- After 5 minutes, mix in barbecue sauce to your liking. If the sauce is too sticky, you can add vinegar to thin it out. When the barbecue sauce is heated, plate the mixture and dress a half a cup of sesame seeds on top.
“The Kick” takes less than 15 minutes to makes for a good lunch. With the pepper, beans, and sesame seeds, this dish alone contains 49.5 grams of protein which is nearing the daily recommended amount at 56 grams . In order to keep up variety and be able to eat this dish more frequently, you can substitute other beans and peppers into “The Kick” as well. I ate this dish for lunch three days in a row and it helped me gain 7 pounds by Friday.
