I like to keep things simple. Some easy-to-cook/prepare main courses within your parameters are:

loaded sweet potato

I am far from vegetarian, still i make these sometimes:

Small onion, chopped, 2 1/2 ounces
1 tablespoon butter
9 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed drained well
5 eggs, beaten
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
12 ounces cheese, shredded

Sauté the onion in butter until tender. Add the spinach and cook until all the moisture has evaporated. Put the cheese in a greased 9x9" pan. Add the spinach mixture and gently mix into the cheese. Beat the salt and pepper into the eggs; pour evenly over the cheese and stir to combine all of the ingredients. Bake 350º for 30 minutes until set.

I've been a vegetarian for 15 years, but I've never been very much of a cook. I want to learn how to cook healthy recipes, but I'm not sure where to start. What are some quick easy recipes that I can start with that won't be too daunting so I can start making meals that aren't out of a box?
