You could try making your spaghetti sauce with lots of mushrooms, and dash some soy sauce in there, for lots of umami without meat.
A recent vegetarian meal I enjoyed was little 'pizzas' made with flour tortillas spread with mango chutney, thinly sliced red onions, and shredded sharp cheddar on top, and baked. (I'm an omnivore, but I usually eat some vegetarian meals every day.)
thanks a lot for the book suggestion, I'll definitely check it out as I'm very interested in that topic!
