I know nothing about vegetarian cooking and I wouldn't be able to get to a bookstore to get a cook book..
My friend is going back home to her native Germany and we're throwing her a going away party and she's a vegetarian.
Problem is, we need to make enough food for about 15 people that is vegetarian friendly and omnivore friendly.
She's the guest of honor so we'd like to make everything vegetarian, but the rest of the guests eat meat.
I would really really, REALLY appreciate recipes and ideas for vegetarian dishes that aren't too difficult to make and can be made in large batches.

Thanks in advance.

Im not sure what kind of food you're looking for, but Italian food is very easy to do vegetarian, is easy to make in large batches, and most meat eaters love it even without the meat.

Here are some of my favorite italian recipes:

or baked ziti, with is just taking cooked penne noodles, placing it in a baking dish with pasta sauce and lots of cheese and baking it until golden and bubbly about 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

also, just plain spaghetti is vegetarian, and super cheap!

another good alternative is mexican food, also highly vegetarian to begin with.some good mexican food recipes are bean burritos, bean chimichangas, or cheese enchiladas!

hope i helped Smiley

Potato salad, pasta salad, coleslaw (and all the variations with loads of fruit and nuts), cucumber sandwhiches, a cheese/cracker platter, maybe even an antipasto platter (minus the meat options, of course). Potato soup or corn chowder can be great, spinach quiche, baked potatoes with the fixings (most bacon bits aren't real meat, so they are veggie friendly), grilled veggies. Or how about that hash brown bake - hash browns (or chopped potatoes, whichever you prefer), cream of mushroom soup (again, if you prefer something else), cheese if you want, sour cream is optional, etc...mix and bake. Yummy! Grilled portobellos, or some of those meat replacers from Morningstar (and others). Loads of options, really Smiley

you know what is really REALLY good? portobello mushroom burgers. its just a regular burger, but instead of a meat pattie, you use a grilled portobello mushroom (dont slice it!). when you buy them, make sure there big enough. man i want one right now.

Here's a recipe that I really like.

Black Soy Bean & Tomato Chili Salsa

Ingredients:

1 can Eden Organic Black Soy Beans, drained
1 can Eden Organic Diced Tomatoes w/Green Chilies, drained
1/2 cup red onion, minced
2 Tablespoons lime juice, freshly squeezed
2 teaspoons Eden Organic Shoyu Soy Sauce
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1 Tablespoon green onion, chopped

Combine all ingridents in a bowl. Mix, taste and add extra lime juice and shoyu, if desired. Serve with Eden Chips or organic tortillia chips.

I find it's so much easier to make just the vegetarian stuff, then grill some steaks or chicken for the carnivores. Beans and tofu are not acceptable subs for most carnivores!
