My dear partner is a committed vegetarian. As the primary cook in the household, I get to make meals for him (which I love doing - this is not a complaint) but I need some ideas about meal options. His favorite foods are what I describe as being "comfort food" and that he describes as being "goulashy." Basically, he craves things like ratatouille, casseroles, pot pies, etc. - anything that comes down to being a one or two pot meal, with the ingredients combined. (I, on the other hand, prefer less cooked dishes. Go figure.)
Any ideas on vegetarian one-pot meals would be much appreciated, as would recipes if you care to share. Oh, and we live in the Los Angeles area, so we have access to lots of fresh fruits and veggies as well as more exotic ingredients.
