We need a vegetarian meals thread!

Just post a few of your favorites/go to meals once in a while here? There's enough vegheads on this board that we can get a decent reference list put together if we put a tiny bit of effort!

Ok, I'm just going to post every few days of meals here. Nothing exciting, but DH and DS are super picky and love these.

Asian Rice
4 cups cooked instant brown rice
1 tsp oil
4 eggs, scrambled
1 bag Steamfresh Asian Stirfry Vegetables

Cook rice on stove per directions. Meanwhile, pop the steamfresh veggies in the microwave. In skillet scramble eggs in the oil. When done, add rice and veggies to eggs. Mix well. DH likes soy sauce on his, I prefer just a pinch of salt.

Cabbage Bean Soup
Half a head of green cabbage (small)
1/2 cup frozen diced green peppers
1 cup frozen sliced carrots
1/2 cup uncooked rice
1 can Pinto Beans
1 can Garbanzo Beans
Just Tomatoes Roasted Garlic
Vegetable Soup Dry Mix
1/2 tsp gr cumin
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp ground ginger (or use fresh if you have it)
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried thyme leaf
1 Tbsp soy sauce
Fresh ground black pepper to taste

Put 6-8c water in stockpot, add rice and vegetable soup dry mix.
In a skillet add vegetables and spices to a tbsp of oil. Sautee for 5-7 minutes. Add to stockpot. Drain and rinse beans, add to stockpot. Let simmer till cabbage and carrots are tender. Add soy sauce/pepper to taste when done. Onions are great but if you add them be sure to up the ginger or add seaweed - onions add to the gassiness of the soup.

Oriental Cabbage Salad
half head of cabbage (small), chopped
4 green onions, chopped
2 pkgs oriental ramen noodles, smashed
4 tablespoons each of: toasted almonds, sesame seeds and sunflower seeds.
Mix together add dressing

1 pkg Oriental seasoning from noodles
1/2 cup oil
2 Tbls. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. soy sauce
1 Tbls. white vinegar
