Peanuts, oil roasted
Tomatoes, sun dried
Wheat flour, whole grain
Egg, hard boiled
Lentil, sprouts, raw
Kidney beans, boiled

Peas, green, raw

contains practical sources of protein. This means it may contain paneer/cottage cheese, of which it is possible to practically consume 100 gm in a day, it will not contain butter (just an example, there's not that much protein in there) of which consuming a 100 gm in a day just isn't feasible.
also contains eggs, which many vegetarians now include in their diets.
is not a complete list and includes a limited number of suggestions. There are more.
is based on searching the above data source for protein and including the top vegetarian sources, in order to find which I have to write computer programs, and which by their nature can contain errors. Please always double check from the source mentioned in case I've made a mistake.
