I can understand where you are coming from, I don't usually cook with ingredients like that, however I do try to cook veggie once/week.
I have gotten hubby to love things like lentil tacos and lentil, black bean and rice burritos. (Sorry, I know you said you were tired of lentils) Try and get creative with your protein source. I make a peanut sauce with alfredo noodles and chicken and veggies, which would be great if you omitted the chicken and just bulked up on veggies. No special ingredients. A veggie pizza is always awesome, and you can make th crust, buy the dough, or buy a premade crust. Thin veggie pizza rocks! I make a side dish of pasta, broccoli, and a little olive oil and red pepper. Bulk it up a big more and it could be a main dish. Chili is easy to make vegetarian, and there are a bunch of ways mix it up.
I hope that helps, or at least inspires you to come up with something new. Feel free to message me if you want more details on any of the recipes.
