Protein for Bodybuilding

Lately my I have been taking my gym time very seriously. I'm trying to stick to a diet that will compliment my workout regimen, so I am trying to get at least 30% of my calories from protein - that's 150 grams of protein a day. (Just for reference, two servings of straight-up pure protein powder only has 50 grams.)

I am a vegetarian, so animal protein isn't available to me. I'm also allergic to nuts. (I know, it's like I'm just being difficult.) I have been eating a lot of chickpeas, egg whites, quinoa, and greek yogurt, but it's still not enough. Can anyone recommend some foods that are VERY high in protein?

Thanks!
