Hey Rivka! In my book, I have a recipe for khoresh sabzi, aka ghormeh sabzi, aka green herb and kidney bean stew. I use tofu that's been frozen, then thawed and baked, to give it a meaty, toothsome texture, and it works really well. If you don't want to bother with all that, I would just make it as is, the kidney beans are a great protein, and then top it with fried/caramelized onions. There's so much flavor in the dish, I think it's a great one to make without meat.
