I'm a vegetarian, I'm starting to work out with weights, and I'm looking for specific
ways to add 1,000 calories per day to my diet. I'm very confused about how to accomplish this healthily. Halp!

I can't radically alter my daily meal habits, as I cook most of the meals for our household and it's working out great for everyone. Thus, I need some in-betweeners that pack a caloric punch. My appetite is generally weak, so the denser and smaller, the better. By "vegetarian" I guess I mean ovo-lacto-cheeso-gelatino-vegetarian. I'd really like specific recipes and calorie counts, rather than general combinations of ingredients. For this endeavor, I would value speed of prep and economy over taste, appearance, or gourmet.
(Yes, I will use a calorie tracker; yes, I have talked with my doctor; yes, I am in good health other than being chronically and significantly underweight; no, I have no food allergies or sensitivities. I'm in my late 20s if that helps somehow.)
