I make a cauliflower soup by chopping 1 head of cauliflower drizzle it with olive oil, then roast it at 350 with some sliced onion and about 3 garlic cloves for 30 - 40 minutes. I then boil it in a chicken stock but you could use veggie broth for 30 minutes. Turn off the heat add a can of fat free condensed milk (not sweetened) and run an immersion blender through it until it is silky smooth. When I eat it I usually melt a slice of smoked provolone into it, but it is really good without the cheese.
Our general experience with vegetarian recipes that are not high-carb: - lentils, lentils, lentils! - green, leafy vegetables - sauces and salsas and spices ...
Decide whether you're more or less 'banning' carbs in an indiscriminate way or whether you're interested in carbs as sugars + starches, but minus fiber. That's why lentils are so good ... about half the 'carbs' are fiber. See also: tempeh and tofu. "Alternative grains" (usually not 'grains' per se, but kinds of seeds) are often good, too, especially quinoa and amaranth.

She has a lot of South Beach diet recipes (I'm not following the diet btw), but there are a lot of great recipes. We've made the baked chicken with pesto and cheese. OMG. So good!
