Yummy one-pot, no-oven vegetarian meals?

I currently live in a situation with one (rather small) cooking pot, one burner, and no oven. What are some delicious meals I can make? I'm more interested in written descriptions than recipes per se (because I'm not much one for measurements and usually end up ditching recipes in favor of their gists anyway), but of course either is fine.
I'm very interested in clever ways of maximizing efficacy with just my one burner-- for example, I often make stirfries by boiling vegetables in the same water as some rice noodles to tenderize them a bit, then empty those all into a colander, stir fry up some tofu/aromatics/sauces, and then finally add the noodles/veggies.
No-pot meals also welcome. I'd love some ideas for salads, with a preference for non-creamy dressings. Recently I've been making a delicious one out of lettuce/greens, goat cheese, and sweetened crunchy peanuts, with olive oil and balsamic lightly applied.
I love food from all around the world, but I live in small-town France and my options for international ingredients are more limited than I'd like, though I do have access to a very small East Asian market.
Bonus points if you can help me incorporate ingredients endemic to or common in France, like French cheeses or leeks.
Thanks in advance!
