I add veggies to my marinara sauce. I add carrots, leeks, chayote fruit, green beans and/or celery. No one realy notices all the veggies in there and I use it for pasta, pizza, fish or chicken.
I also add finely chopped (you can use the food processor) veggies like red pepper, carrot, celery, leeks, parsnips to ground beef, turkey or chicken for hamburgers, meatloaf, chilli or meatballs.
Veggie burgers are also a good option, there are several recipes on the web.
Soups are a good way, especially if you add some whole wheat croutons or shredded cheese. You can do it with any veggie you want, just sautee them, add water, cook until soft, puree and season.
