 I'm new to this group, and love to look at new recipies.  However, I can't use most of them since I only cook vegetarian for my vegetarian daughter.  I run out of ideas quickly and was wondering if anyone has any recipies they would like to share.  Thanks.

 We usually have pasta when we are having a meat-free day. I'm pretty sure there are a few other vegetarian mommas on here so hopefully someone can help!

 Yeah, we are kind of the same way. DH doesnt love veggies enough to make a meal of it. My mom makes a cabbage stew though thats really healthy and good. Tastes like regular vegetable soup but very low cal. If i was making that a meal I would have it with a baked potato or something like that.

 Oh, stuffed peppers. I make mine with sausage but I am sure you could sub out the sausage and replace it with a bean!

This is the recipe I use:

STUFFED PEPPERS
(The original recipe called for brown rice, I substitute quinoa)
4 large red or green peppers
1 T olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
2 stalks celery, diced
1 t cumin
1 t chili powder
1 t basil
½ tsp oregano
2 cups cooked quinoa or brown rice
1 ½ cups cooked and drained red kidney beans (or one can; really, any bean will do)
2 T tamari
Cayenne to taste
1 ½ cups canned tomatoes with their juice
1 small can tomato paste
Thinly sliced cheese (optional) 
Wash the peppers and cut them in half  length wise.  Remove the  seeds. Place the peppers, cut side down, on a  rack above boiling water.  Cover  the pot and steam for about 10 min or until they are just beginning to get  soft.  DO NOT STACK ON TOP OF ONE  ANOTHER...they will not steam evenly. Heat the olive oil in a large  skillet.  Add the onions, celery, cumin, chili powder, basil and oregano.   Saute until the onions are almost tender. Add the cooked quinoa and beans.  Mix well; then add the tamari and the  cayenne to taste. Mix again. Lightly oil a shallow 7 x 11 inch baking  dish.  Fill each pepper with the  bean and quinoa mixture and place the peppers side by side in the baking  dish. Mix together the canned tomatoes and the  tomato paste.  If the tomatoes are  whole, chop them up or break them up with a fork. Pour the tomato mixture over the stuffed  peppers.  Cover the baking dish  with foil and bake at 350´ for 30 minutes. Uncover the dish and top each pepper with a thin slice of cheese if desired.   Return the dish to the oven and bake an additional 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted
