I'm like you, Jen_Marie! I like vegetarian food though I'm not vegetarian. I have built a Recipe collection over on SparkRecipes.com. Here are a few of my favorite easy go-to meals.
Brazillian Black Beans recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?
Chick Pea Basil Saute recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?
Three Bean Salad recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?
Gazpacho Soup recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?
You'll notice from this list that I am big on beans. I love them. I will note that the chili is my favorite and has won many awards. Every time I enter it in a chili cook-off, I win first place over all the meat-based chilis. (Shameless brag.)
Other ideas I've seen that I don't have recipes for are:
Vegetarian lasagna-using spinach and mushrooms instead of meat in the sauce. Even replace the noodles with thin sliced zucchini if you're feeling adventurous.
Mushroom and tofu stroganoff-I have a recipe but it's at home. It needs a major makeover, but I bet you can get some ideas from sparkrecipes for that!
I hope that gives you some ideas!
