9. Roasted chickpeas
Chickpeas are historically the most often consumed food in South America, used by the Mayas and Aztecs for centuries for maintaining lean and strong physiques.
Chickpeas are a great source of protein, and contain a bit of fat as well. They’re arguably the best non-legume protein food that is vegan-friendly. As far as taste is concerned, roasted chickpeas are basically like popcorn, but they contain a larger amount of protein.
