hearty veggie meals

Photo credit: Martin Cathrae
I aim to put at least one vegetarian dinner on our weekly menu, but I often struggle to find veggie recipes that are hearty enough to satisfy big eaters like Brad and me (and soon to be Mason). Most of my vegetarian staples include pasta or dishes with loads of cheese--tasty, but not necessarily healthy.

However, these grilled veggie sandwiches were a huge hit last week. Even my meat-loving hubby declared this recipe "a keeper". They took little time to make (a plus!) and were surprisingly flavorful.

What are your favorite vegetarian main dishes? I need some ideas!

For something different, I really like this lentil and coconut milk soup (http://benandbirdy.blogspot.ca/2011/12/red-lentil-soup-and-other-thoughts.html). It can be eaten on its own as a soup with pita bread or naan, or it goes well on top of rice with veggies on the side.

Sometimes I will just sub in chickpeas and mushrooms for say chicken in a recipe. Especially in something like a stir fry or casserole.

Pam Anderson (one of our food editors, not the busty blonde) just put out a cookbook of meatless meals. She is fantastic, as is her blog: threemanycooks.com. Check her out. One of her daughters suggested roasted eggplant and mushroom pizza in a tweet chat we did. Joe loved it. Here's a summary with some other ideas she had.
