What are your favorite vegetarian recipes without soy?

I get tired of meat and fish, especially in the summer, and love to eat dishes with alternate protein sources. I can't eat soy (except for good soy sauce) so I eat a lot of lentils and beans. I need some inspiration because I'm having some trouble thinking of things to make.

:)

    Quinoa has a lot of protein. Try adding nuts to your cooking, too.

    Are you looking for more bean-based recipes? Do you eat cheese and yogurt? Eggs?

    I'm mostly vegetarian and I very rarely eat soy. Above are most of my sources of protein.

    This isn't a high protein dish but it's vegan and I'm addicted to it

    Yes to cheese, yogurt, and eggs. I am not vegetarian but I often get tired of the taste of meat, poultry, and fish/seafood. But when I go looking for cooking ideas without them, it seems that most contain soy, which I don't eat. I love beans and nuts and use them a lot, but usually it's just a matter of sauteing or roasting some vegetables and tossing some beans in with them with some garlic and/or herbs or making a salad. I'm bored. lol

    Pizza - I make my own crust and made one with chopped tomatoes, basil, spinach and goat cheese over the weekend. Really good - and leftovers w/ a sunnyside up egg on top made a great breakfast!

    I love making spaghetti squash as pasta, and it can work really well with a pine nut and olive oil sauce and wilted spinach.

    Now that I think of it, nearly every favorite vegetarian recipe has spinach.

    I do also love stuffed bell peppers with quinoa or beans and other veggies. Chile rellenos is good, too.

    I like to do enchiladas filled with shredded zucchini and/or black beans for enchiladas. Yum!

    Noodle bowls with veggies, rice noodles, broth, sriracha are a favorite (OBSESSION) of mine.

    Soup, of course...and vegetarian chili.

    do you have a recipe for one of your noodle bowls?

    I prep my noodles (boil if rice noodles, rinse if tofu noodles).

    Saute vegetables. It's almost always leftover roasted broccoli, snap peas, onion, pepper, mushroom and sometimes water chestnuts and baby corn.

    Add broth to the veggies, then throw in the noodles. I typically use hoisin, fish or oyster sauce (whatever I'm feeling, but not necessary) then throw in the noodles, add sriracha to taste and let it simmer for a little bit.

    Sometimes I add any or all at the end: cilantro, lime juice, bean sprouts, pea shooters, or peanuts directly to my bowl.

    It's kind of my "bathroom sink" meal. Whatever is around can usually satisfy my noodle bowl craving.

    I love sriracha!

    One of my favorite simple meals is eggs beaten with scallions, soy sauce, and sriracha, (and sometimes oyster sauce too) cooked like an omelete and served over rice.

    Sometimes I use this instead:
