Vegetarian meals for picky eater

Hi! I'm a vegetarian and I just never cared for meat. I'm extremely picky and don't like many vegetables. Please give me some ideas of healthy, quick, vegetarian meals that aren't just variations of pizza and pasta.

This is not your classical meal, but I find smoothies to be a great addition to the vegetarian diet, and a great way to 'slip' in veggies or greens. One of my favorites is this one, it has blueberries, avocado, spinach and chia seeds, things that are extremely nutritious, and you would not expect them to taste delicious, but they do. Here is the recipe: http://holisticnewyork.com/article/healthy-living-nyc-anti-aging-blueberry-smoothie.html

Creseaside, what is your recipe for bean burgers??  I've tried a few and they are often dry!

Black beans are good---  can put them over brown rice, in a whole wheat wrap.  

I love lentils and lentil soup is good to try, lentil salad.  Garbonzo beans are delicious both in a salad made up of them or in a processor as said above for hummus.  

Let me know if you need actual recipes.

I used to be on fit for life. That's eating only fruit till noon. No food combos.
I also make home made soup & there's lots of recipes right on this forum
  You start w better than bullion ( in a glass jar) vegetable broth.
   I like lots of potatoes. Carrots grated in food processor.
     Make carmellized onions. In fry pan w salt on low heat for about 20 min.
   Just put any vegetables you like in soup. Make lots. It freezes nicely.
Then on busy days you've a great soup. Just thaw.
   I also make bean hamburgers.  And garbonzo beans in food processor with garlic to make Humus.
