This recipe requires no meat ‘substitutes’ and invites you instead to forget about substitution and to just remove the meat component altogether. You won’t even miss it, I promise. One single serving of this dish is 16g of protein and it’s just veggies and rice. You can even eat 2 servings all to yourself for good measure.
