Stuff it!!!! Vegan protein stuffed avocados

Just stuff it! That’s exactly what I want to say when people exclaim “you are vegan?? But how do you get your protein?!?!!!” I would love to respond by first telling them they are insanely ignorant and then slapping them, but I chose the more socially acceptable response of saying “from plants”. Recipe below is a great after workout snack that first appealed to me because it was different than all the other stuffed avocado recipes, but it stuck with me for my love of edamame and salt after a work out. Enjoy!!
