Oh yeah - 1 cup of cooked lentils has just under 18 grams of protein. Lentils are another member of the legume family, along with beans, peas and peanuts. Very versatile and fairly quick cooking too!

I second the vote for quinoa as a great protein source that feels like a carb. Also, squeeze in more protein with higher-protein carb sources like soba (buckwheat) noodles instead of another pasta.
