Default Lean sources of protein for a vegetarian

I've been a vegetarian for around 14 years, and after logging my food I realised that my sources of protein are putting too much fat and carbohydrates into my diet. After cutting down on healthy protein sources, it turns out that I'm getting 100% of my daily carb recommendation, but only 49% of my RDA for protein.

My local grocery store is very limited and unpredictable (they don't even sell tofu...).

So I've been eating a lot of yogurt, hummus, quinoa and butter beans. Of course I eat eggs, but I'm finding myself getting sick of them (so any easy egg recipes would be greatly appreciated!). I also recently started eating oysters again (although I feel a little guilty), but to get enough protein from them I have to eat a huuuuuge quantity.

Any advice/tips?
