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.
