I'm a fish-a-tarian, having over a couple for dinner in a week. One person in the couple doesn't really like fish. The other person is *very* lactose and soy intolerant. All of us have children and work full time (my way of saying that I don't have a lot of time for lots of prep). And, the temperature has recently become quite hot here in DC (meaning, I don't want to have the oven on for hours at a time). Oh, we all like spicey (with the possible exception of the children, but that's just a whole 'nother problem!)
So, I'm looking for suggestions for recipes, menu ideas that meet the following requirements:
1. No meat, fish, dairy, tofu. Eggs are ok.
2. Minimal prep (or, prep that can be done ahead of time, nothing a la minute).
3. Minimal use of oven.
For past shared dinners, I've made Indian food (dal, etc.), vegetarian chili and a vegetable tart (olive oil-based tart dough that I've never been pleased with the results of). I'm looking for something different, but will return to variations on these themes if need be.
Thanks for any help offered,
