Re: Resources for quick vegetarian meals?

we were meat eaters until 6 months ago so I tend to cook all the same things I cooked with meat, but substitute a variety of veggies where I'd normally use meat. For example, what used to be chicken enchiladas, I will cook up a handful of brussels sprouts, radishes, a 1/2 of a zucchini, yellow squash, onions, garlic, and whatever leafy green I have on hand (like spinach or kale) and continue the recipe as usual without the chicken. Same thing for chicken-less pot pie. I follow the Paula Deens Hurry Up Chicken Pot Pie recipe.

My go-to easy recipes are sushi with whatever raw veggies we have on hand, pesto pasta or hummus wraps.

ETA: i forgot to mention, another favorite is risotto, which can be done with whatever you're feeling like. I love a porcini mushroom risotto filled with lots of mushrooms, we also love asparagus risotto in the spring, but you can do it with carrots or squash, whatever is in season.
