We love to do veggie burritos. I use a mix of zuch, mushrooms, onion & peppers. Sautee in EVOO til soft. Then add chili powder or taco seasoning, cumin & garlic. They are great in burritos or over rice or potatoes.

I also make what we call egg pie. I guess it is like a fritatta. Eggs, cheese, a little milk & whatever veggies you have.

I don't like to cook much either anymore so I am happy to see the other suggestios here.

ETA: I also like to make crock pot chili w/ whatever veggeis I have around. Usually it is some mix of black beans, lentils, tvp, pinto beans, canned tomatoes, corn, sweet potato, onion, zuchini, peppers (and whatever else I ahve that sounds good) & seasoning. I always fill my cp so I have plenty to freeze too.

Could you post that recipe, or pm me w/ it if it can't be posted here. I've gotten that book from the library a few times, & I it. Maybe for xmas I'll get it.

Dh and I usually make up a big batch of Spanish rice and refried beans, then buy a bulk bag of ww tortillas (when we don't make our own). We make about 20 burritos adding cheese and salsa. Then we put them on cookie sheets and freeze. Toss them in a freezer bag and reheat for a quick dinner. We add sour cream and veggies, along with a homemade pepper relish when we reheat them, and it's a real life saver on busy days!

We also make lasagna roll-ups, something I "borrowed" from another mama in my DDC. Boil the noodles and make up your riccota cheese mix (we add tofu or TVP for extra protein). Take each noodle, spoon a chunk of cheese mix onto one end and roll it up like a jelly roll. Place on a cookie sheet, freeze until solid. When you want one, take it out, put in casserole dish, add sauce and some grated cheese on top, bake until hot. Easiest way to make lasagna ever!

We keep it very simple, do a rotation each week:

Monday: Egg dish (usually frittata) with salad
Tuesday: Rice-based dish (find one online each week)
Wednesday: Chili
Thursday: Pasta night
Friday: Burrito
Saturday: you're on your own
Sunday: Indian (usually channa masala or a spinach dish)

Actually now that I've written it out it looks like a kid's menu LOL. (We're two grownups with an infant). But it works for us.

Does that taco thing work with somone that cannot have cheese. I am lactose intolerant too. I am trying to go completly vegan because of it. Although I have found that most vegan/vegetarian meals have lots of cheese in them.
