This is also a big hit at our house but I will warn that it is a pain to cook (I would half the recipe unless you have a giant family). It is super simple but that is a ton of cabbage to try to fit in a pot or slow cooker. It tastes great though.

http://www.food.com/recipe/red-lenti...us-soup-115423
This is probably hands down the favorite meal at our house. I use mung bean lentils in it and can do it with or without the couscous. It is just plain wonderful.

http://www.food.com/recipe/coconut-rice-373756
Another favorite but I make it vegan using coconut oil and coconut milk (like the kind you would drink not the cans). I triple the recipe and then make a veggie to go with it and that is what we have for dinner. The kids will eat it for breakfast with a little coconut milk. They just love it.

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/easy-br...10=1&e7=Recipe
I do this with veggie broth instead of chicken bullion and it is just as good if not better with canned coconut milk instead of evaporated milk. I have also omitted the flour without issue. It works well with both broccoli and cauliflower. We love this and do it all of the time. (you can use frozen veggies if you don't have fresh)

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/back-bu...10=1&e7=Recipe
This is great and can be done in the slow cooker

http://www.barilla.com/content/recip...rian-kale-soup
I make it with veggie broth and it is very good. The kids tell me it tastes like chicken soup?

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/mushroo...0=1&e7=Article
This is amazing. I love this soup but can't have it right now cause I am off of gluten. I can't wait till I can eat gluten again so I can make this soup. Love me some lentils and mushrooms.

http://skinnyms.com/skinny-black-bean-flautas/
Everyone here loved these

ETA: Lasagna is a great make ahead meal and can be veggie, even the noodles can be strips of veggies (like squash) instead of noodles. I make everyone eat what I am making cause I'm just mean that way but I will sometimes make a meat and then just eat the veggies and starch like potato or rice while they have everything. You can also do something like the flautas or burritos and just stuff yours with veg while everyone else gets meat in theirs. I've noticed dh gets over not having meat if I make a really go veg chili or soup.
Thank you, I'm going to bookmark these recipes! My dh is quite picky, so there are very few of these recipes that he would actually try. Ds(4) and dd(14mo) both eat more veggies than dh, but they both like meat as well. I don't mind warming or throwing together a separate entree for me if it's quick, today I had a veg burger patty from the freezer w/grilled peppers & onions, a baked sweet potato, and a kale salad while everyone else had bratwurst and baked potatoes.

I have been veg or at least only eaten fish for a long time so everyone just sort of got used to it. My boys always ate this way. When I was easing them into the change I had a lot of luck with spinach or zucchini in lasagna and veggie macaroni and cheese. I would just boil broccoli or cauliflower with my pasta then mix in a bit of milk (we use almond), butter, 1 egg, and mozzarella, then put in a glass baking dish and bake covered for about an hour. Everyone loves it because it is macaroni and cheese. Even Tharen who has gotten stubborn about veggies. I have lots of other recipes if you would like. I think I could post them all day. I'm vegan, gluten and soy free right now but I have lots and lots of veggie recipes saved. About half are slow cooker recipes because we are gone so much in the evenings and I need to have food ready when we get home.

I'd love some slow cooker recipes! I'm usually home during the day, but sometimes it's nice to be lazy and just throw it all in the slow cooker. I'm not a big fan of lentils, every dish I make with them just tastes like baked beans to me, lol. I'll try anything else though!

Re: We need a vegetarian meals thread!

http://www.vegweb.com/recipes/raw-av...zucchini-pasta
I haven't tried this yet but I'm making it for dinner tonight. It is supposed to keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days and looks like quick prep. So far I've liked every recipe I've found on Vegweb (I found a great vegan ice cream there too, not that it was at all healthy but it tastes great).

http://www.closetcooking.com/2009/05...e-pancake.html
I love these. I do them without the bacon and am going to try them gluten free Friday. Dh and the boys love them too but they might be a lot of work if no one else would eat them. The nice thing about them is that you could put bacon on them for anyone who wanted it but do yours without.

http://www.closetcooking.com/2010/02...esadillas.html
I love spinach and feta together. These are really fast and easy to make and if your lo's and dh won't eat them you can always make them chicken quesadillas at the same time.

http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/...f-5bd93f1986d6
This is a favorite at our house except dh doesn't like the parsnips (he feeds them to Tharen who doesn't like potatoes so they trade). It is pretty easy to prep and is great as left overs too.

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/g...ipe/index.html
This is just a quick and easy way to make broccoli. I do this and rice and call it dinner, you can always prep an easy meat for everyone else if you need to.

http://busycooks.about.com/od/pastaw...pestopasta.htm
something very much like this is a standby at our house. I buy packaged pesto and a box of whole grain pasta plus two packs of cherry or grape tomatoes. While boiling off the pasta I will saute the tomatoes. I drain the pasta and combine the tomatoes, drained pasta and pesto over low heat until everything is warm. Sometimes I cook off chicken sausage for the guys (I either pull out my portion and then add the sliced sausage right to the pot or I serve it on the side for them). Everyone really likes it and it only takes about 15minutest to make. You can serve it with Parmesan on the side.

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/r...ipe/index.html
This is fast to cook and tastes great, everyone liked it as a change from plain old spaghetti. While I'm on the subject of pumpkin we also love pumpkin pancakes for dinner. I just add a can of pumpkin to my normal pancake batter, a little vanilla extract and some cinnamon and ginger and the pancakes are a huge hit. You can bake them in lined muffin tins if you don't want to be stuck at the stove (or if you want to cook eggs as well) and serve with fruit. It is a lot of fun.

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/cheesy-...ch/detail.aspx
I have to quadruple this to be enough for my family but they do love it (probably cause of the cheese). It is enough for a side but not enough for a meal unless you make more. It would be enough for one though. It takes a little time to make but quinoa is such a great addition to your diet that it is worth working in.

http://www.slowandsimple.com/Herbed_...oup-r-293.html
This is so easy, just toss in frozen or fresh veggies and let it cook. Everyone here loves it plus it makes great left overs (lunches, freeze and keep meals, it's great).

http://www.slowandsimple.com/Tortilla_Soup-r-312.html
This is another super simple slow cooker soup. I don't bother sauteing the veggies first (I toss the onion in a food processor instead cause I hate onion). Sometimes I use frozen mixed onion and peppers and those work well too. I use veggie broth instead of chicken and it turns out to a really nice tortilla soup. I like sliced avocado with mine.

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/r...ipe/index.html
I like this soup after I played with the spices a bit, dh really liked it as well but the kids weren't as fond of it. I have a hard time finding pumpkin soups they really like which is strange because they love pumpkin. I'm a huge pumpkin and squash fan though.

http://www.barilla.com/content/recip...able-primavera
I have been known to just make these veggie medleys, they kids are not as pleased by that as they are the tortellini primavera. It is good with other pastas as well. I have never bothered seeding the zucchini, that sounds like a lot of work. I also use cherry tomatoes most of the time. I'm lazy like that.

http://vegetarian.about.com/od/soups...minestrone.htm
this is how I convinced dh he likes tofu. prepping the tofu for this recipe was a little difficult (not the pressing but the baking) but it was worth it. It is a really nice recipe and everyone likes it.

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/quinoa-...10=1&e7=Recipe
I make this pretty often, I almost always have the ingredients around as it is a good fall back meal. I can even prepare it in the slow cooker if I have to.

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/zucchin...10=1&e7=Recipe
This is just quick and easy and I happen to really like zucchini

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/vegetar...10=1&e7=Recipe
another tortilla soup recipe. I love this but it takes longer to make.

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/pumpkin...arch%20Results
So I like pumpkin recipes... this is another easy pumpkin pasta

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/wiscons...10=1&e7=Recipe
This is excellent broccoli cheese soup. It tastes just like what you would get at a restaurant. I trade the bullion for veggie broth but otherwise leave it the same. It is so easy to make too.

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/a...ipe/index.html
This is my Halloween recipe. I have made it several times just the way it is written and it is a bit daunting to make. I have also cheated and used canned pumpkin and made it in a pot (it is simpler and turns out just as well but not as pretty). I love this soup. Again, I have a thing for pumpkin.

http://www.kraftrecipes.com/recipes/...lad-66113.aspx
This recipe is great because you can make it ahead (in fact you should make it at least 3 hours before you want to eat it but 12 hours is even better) and it stays good in the fridge for at least 3 days. It makes a huge portion so be prepared for that but it tastes sooooo good. Dh hates olives so I subbed in artichoke hearts.

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/tomato-...10=1&e7=Recipe
This is another you can make ahead and keep for at least several hours if not a couple of days. Other options would be to use Italian dressing or just olive oil and basil. You could opt to use mozzarella and add the cheese just before eating (mozzarella gets a bit weird when exposed to vinegar for very long in my experience). Just try what you like.

http://vegetarian.about.com/od/soups...aragussoup.htm
I made this the other day soy and gluten free and it was pretty good, the boys loved it.

http://vegetarian.about.com/od/veggi...roomburger.htm
Now I have made these and they taste amazing, however I had a hard time getting them to hold together. I don't know if I did something wrong or what. Next time I would freeze them individually. What I wound up with was a sort of sloppy joe (which still tasted great). I might add chia seeds to the mix to absorb some of the moisture next time as well, or oats.

http://www.vegetarianslowcooker.com/...ble-curry.html
This is very good, dh and I both love it, the kids will not eat it they say it is too hot. They don't eat any of my curries though.

http://www.ifood.tv/recipe/tofu-and-spinach-manicotti
This tastes great but I cheat and make it lasagna instead of manicotti (stuffing the manicotti took forever.

http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/...1-10fef4cb2091
This is an absolute favorite at our house, I make it all of the time. It is so simple and tastes great. I don't even bother with the pesto but the pesto is good if you want it.

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/pesto-q...10=1&e7=Recipe
same idea as pesto and pasta recipe, I make it the same

http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/...2-d853e2f36fa1
This is another one I really love. It tastes great (probably isn't the healthiest but it is yummy). I am not eating it right now because it isn't vegan.

http://www.chiaseedrecipes.com/chia-pan-bread.php
I made these and everyone but Tharen loved them. I used whole wheat flour as my second flour and zucchini as my veggie. Next time I may use almond or gluten free flour but will probably stick with zucchini. They were good with cream cheese or butter and Kearnan liked them with rose preserve. They are very filling.

http://skinnyms.com/slow-cooker-indian-stew/
This was quite good and fairly easy to make, I like things with beans or lentils to ensure I get fiber and protein.

http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Healthi...RelatedRecipes
ok so it isn't a meal but these are just really good. I do cheat and eat them for breakfast (and let the boys do it too). They just taste so good.

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/meaties...er/Detail.aspx
dh loved this, I wasn't quite as crazy about it but it was still pretty good. It tasted like real chili (probably why I didn't like it as well). Dh bought himself a bag of fritos and some cheddar and ate it like frito pie. I'm only mildly embarrassed to know him

http://www.vegweb.com/recipes/avocado-hummus
this is a very good hummus recipe. Hummus is great as a snack or I dip veggies in it for lunch most days. I use the base recipe and then just add to it.

http://www.vegweb.com/recipes/roaste...and-apple-soup
made this for dinner last night and everyone loved it. I used frozen butternut squash (because I didn't want to deal with fresh) and happened to have part of a can of pumpkin from making "ice cream". It tasted amazing.

Most of the other recipes I have involve lentils as we eat a lot of lentils. I also have some bread recipes and dessert recipes. LOL And I think I just wrote a novel.

I'm pretty sure you're my new hero! Thank you so much! Now I'm really hungry and want some pesto and pasta and feta cheese, lol. Every one of these sound delicious, and I really wish I had some butternut squash because I want to make that soup right this minute.

Tonight I'm doing a no-meat pasta bake, and dh will just have to deal with it because I'm too lazy to make anything else today! I'm going to try to sneak some purees veggies into the sauce, and serve with garlic bread and salad.

Sent from my iPhone that has a mind of its own

Forgot to say that I put the spinach in the food processor instead of folding it in. I found that folding left the spinach kind of in clumps through out. It really is good, you would never know it is tofu instead of cheese.

These are the number one favorite recipe in our house, and guests always rave about them (my FIL simply could not get over the fact that they were veg!):

And the all-time greatest spinach burgers on the planet (even DH prefers these over regular burgers):
