One of my absolute favorites is zucchini sauteed in butter and rosemary. IMO rosemary is incredible on most vegetables.

Recently I have been enjoying spaghetti squash. Cut it in half lengthwise, rub about a tablespoon of butter into each half, and roast for 40mins - 1 hour depending on the size. Scoop out the flesh, cover with spaghetti sauce. For a sweet alternative, roast it with about a tablespoon or two of brown sugar inside each half, then mix it so the melted sugar gets well incorporated after you roast and eat plain. Don't add too much sugar because spaghetti squash is kind of sweet on it's own.

I also really love cheese ravioli with spinach, I beg my husband to make it all the time because he does it best.

chickpea cutlets are one of my favorites:

If eggs are okay with you (I assume so, since you said vegetarian, not vegan), one dish I like to do is eggs in tomato sauce:
- preheat oven (around 400F)
- saute onion(s) in a large ovenproof pan
- add chopped spinach (or kale), tomato sauce (thick sauce, as plain as you can get), paprika (smoked if you have it) and cumin (along with salt, pepper, hot pepper, to taste)
- Once your sauce is hot, make small "holes" in the sauce (if it's thick enough for that, doesn't need to be very deep) and break an egg in each "hole". Put the whole thing in the oven. Bake until the top of the egg is white.
- Serve with rice
Sorry that might have been a bit confusing. I don't have an actual recipe for that. Oh, and the eggs will be runny, so hopefully that's okay too.

Other quick ideas:
- salads (you can add proteins with them with nuts, seeds, tofu (smoked tofu is great for salads), hard boiled eggs...)
- marinated, baked tofu with grains and veggies
- eggplant Parmesan (you can look up recipes for that)
- omelet or quiche

I also like to bake tofu in a sauce made of peanut butter, soy sauce, hot sauce, ginger, a little bit of oil and just enough water to give it a nice texture. I usually bake onions and mushrooms with the tofu and serve with rice and steamed broccoli.

One more recipe I do often is lentils, veggies (onions, carrots, peas, broccoli, or whatever I have) in a coconut curry sauce. Yum!

Nut roasts are also great.

Also mushroom and sweet potato curry:- http://veganredheadarunning.blogspot...oom-curry.html

I make spaghetti but use brown lentils instead of meat :-)

I am looking for some ideas too. Been veggie for 11 years now but feel like I am ways make the same stuff. I have a few cookbooks which I have pretty much exhausted.

I am looking for things that non-veggies can enjoy, or that meat can easily be added to at the end as my partner still eats meat (he doesn't mind eating veggie a few times a week but he still loves his meat!) my main problem is that he doesn't like mushrooms or aubergine, he eats quorn chicken and Linda McCartney sausages, but won't eat any of the other quorn varieties or tofu. It is so tough sometimes!

I make a good chickpea and spinach curry with cauliflower rice if anyone would like the recipe. Sometimes is with the chickpeas for sweet potato.

Yes I would like the recipe for the curry please loey Lo!

Neither of my kids like meat with the exception of sausages. ... And are they really meat anyway?!!
They do like fish but there's only so much of that you can eat so I'm trying to go for a few more dishes that are veg only.

I made a kinda vegetarian shephards pie:-

A tin of baked beans
A tin of chopped tomatoes
A tin of mixed pulses drained
200ml of stock (I used beef but any could be used)

Simmered for 30-40mins until thickened and added some chopped parsley.

I cooked some LM Rosemary & Onion sausages and cut them up and put them in a dish, added a couple of hard boiled eggs quartered, then poured the bean mixture over the top. Topped with mash potato and chucked it in the oven for 20mins to brown up.
