What goes with lentil side dish

I am trying to get lentils into our diet more. I have a good lentil dish with red lentils, red beans and tomato sauce. What would go good with that as a main dish?

A simple protein such as boneless/skinless grilled or baked chicken breasts, pork loin or tenderloin, or maybe skewers of shrimp.

My son loves to doctor up lentil soup with spices and some veggies like onions, celery, and napa cabbage, then he moulds white rice in the middle of a wide bowl and pours the lentil soup around the rice. He calls it lentil etouffee. It's a meal by itself, but you could add the shrimp or sliced chicken over the lentils.

I went down to the demonstration, to get my fair share of abuse.

Sounds like it might go over, under, or next to a nice piece of white fish.

That sounds good. I will try.

I also thought that grilled Moroccan chicken would go good also.
