I'm not a vegetarian either, but what about some Indian dishes? You can slow cook things like potatoes, carrots, peas, spinach, tofu, etc. in your favorite yogurt sauce in a crockpot. I also like seasoned steamed veggies that can be eaten alone or with rice or noodles. Chili is pretty hearty if you like beans, and it freezes well for lunches. What about hummus, pasta dishes, bean burritos, soups (broccoli, potato, barley, corn, gumbo), stuffed peppers, nachos & guacamole, omelets, peanut butter, or grilled cheese? A lot of this depends if you are going vegetarian or vegan.
