      Hi Elsa, this can be a side dish or a vegan entree. There is plant-based protein in the dish, approximately 4 grams per serving if you stick to 4 servings. Most of us get plenty of protein in a day and are able to meet our needs. However, if you are concerned and want to use it as part of a vegan meal, I would suggest pairing with a lentil or bean salad and additional vegetables. For vegetarian, you can also include some cheese or eggs as part of the meal.
