Share Your Grainless Recipes!

Help my sanity - share your grainless vegetarian recipes! I can't tolerate any grains, rice, oat, barley, wheat, corn, quinoa, etc. This means that traditional "gluten free" replacements are out of the question. I'm starting to hit the wall in terms of being able to deal with it, and I need some variety in my diet! Right now, I'm avoiding eating because it's so disheartening, and I want the joy back in meal times. A sample of what I eat currently under the fold.

I eat lots of stir fry, frittatas, green salads and bowls of beans and cheese. I generally have greek yogurt in the morning for breakfast. Lunch is a salad (cheese, nuts, roasted red bell peppers, etc.) Dinner, well, I've been skipping dinner a lot because I'm just so sick of food. If I can get myself to eat, it's roasted vegetables, stir fry or a frittata.
I absolutely love spices of all kinds and spicy things in general. Green chile gets me through.
I love hummus, guacamole and other dips, but I am so beyond sick of eating them on carrot sticks and celery. Any ideas for something more like a cracker? Or other vegetables or exciting ways to use it? I used to eat lots of wraps with hummus in them, but that's out now.
If you have good websites with this sort of recipe, I'd love it! Good casseroles with no grains would be good, too.
The only restriction I have is that I am allergic to peanuts and can't eat meat. I'd love it if I was a meat eater since it would make this all easier, but since that's not on the table please don't give me meat recipes.
Let me stress that all grains are out. If you have a brilliant idea for a grain replacement or a grain-like something (quinoa or whatever) that you think I can eat, I can not eat it and it is not a helpful suggestion. Mostly, it will just depress me even more about what I can't have.
