Vegetarian options at Grand Sichuan St. Marks

I like Grand Sichuan St. Marks, enough to want to order delivery from time to time, but my girlfriend is vegetarian. While I often dismiss her complaints, I think she is right that most Chinese dishes, including the few she's tried from Grand Sichuan St. Marks, fall in one of two categories - 'gloppy' Americanized junk, or plain 'side dish' type items that consist of just one vegetable (say, sauteed string beans) best eaten by carnivores as a compliment to a meat dish.

I'm craving the cumin beef tonight and am trying to convince her to order. Are there any 100% vegetarian dishes (ie, not the Me Pa To Fu) that are entree sized and comprised of more than just one vegetable that you would recommend?

Perhaps the Mixed Vegetables in a Little Wok, #102?
