These power-packed vegetarian meals (each with 15 or more grams of protein) are here to show you that meatless eating doesn't mean sacrificing essential nutrients.

1 - 15 ounce can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 - cups soft bread crumbs
1/4 - cup shredded carrot
1/4 - cup finely chopped onion
1 - egg
2 - tablespoons snipped fresh parsley
3 - tablespoons olive oil
4 - slices country Italian bread, toasted
1 - cup packed fresh baby spinach
1/4 - cup Easy Tomato Sauce (recipe below)

In a medium bowl mash beans with a fork or potato masher. Stir in half of the bread crumbs, the carrot, onion, egg, half of the parsley, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Combine remaining bread crumbs and parsley in a shallow dish.
Shape bean mixture into 4 patties (mixture will be soft). Dip both sides of patties into bread crumb mixture to coat.
