This is adapted from the Herald-Sun newspaper. Fabulous side dish, great with fresh tomatoes. This can mostly can be made ahead, just have the topping ready and pop that on, and into the oven. If you don't use fairly thick slices of bread, you may want to cut down on the olive oil slightly.
This veggie lasaga is packed with veggies. I started with a tofu mixture from How It All Vegan, and then went from there. (I expect that the nutrition info is off on the cholesterol. Regular lasagne noodles are vegan, and would have no cholesterol..the Zaar nutritional content is showing cholesterol. However, if you use the no-bake lasagne noodles, those are not vegan, so if that is important to you, then keep that in mind.)
Cheese and onion are old friends and were made to go together. This delicious savory pie is super easy to prepare with store-bought sheets of puff pastry, and is great for brunch, or for dinner with a large tossed salad. From the "Everyday Vegetarian".
I prefer a good portabella mushroom sandwich to a typical veggie burger anyday, and this one is excellent. It's juicy, garlicky and cheesy, and really quick. Try it on the grill in the summer, on grilled French bread with garden-fresh tomato ... mmmmmmm! Prep time includes marinating mushrooms.
This is so delicious and so simple. It's a little exotic, very flavorful, and will make your kitchen smell wonderful as it cooks - and my preference is to add extra cumin! I've never made it without first soaking the rice and lentils, but the dish could surely be adapted to no-soaking if you're looking to cut some of the prep time.
You've got to try this! This is my mom's recipe--it's delicious and easy to prepare! Kids love it, too! The recipe calls for bread crumbs, but we prefer crushed Ritz crackers. Depending on the size of your zucchini, most people can eat two halves.
A traditional Greek vegetarian dish. Delicious and easy. Great to do when you have a bumper crop of zucchini on hand. Olive oil adds a great flavour element to the dish, and also adds extra calories as Briami is considered a 'main dish' here in Greece. If you choose to serve it as a side, you can cut back some on the olive oil. The servings specified are considering it as a vegetarian main dish. If you're having it as a side, either cut back, or plan on getting more servings out of it.
If your family is sitting on the fence about spinach, you will want to give this recipe a try!

I only "discovered" Mexican food about a year ago....almost wish I had been born south of the border!! These are easy to make & quite tasty; they can be served as an appetizer or an entre with a crisp, green salad.
