Vegetarian and vegetable-focused one-pot meals. Cookbook recommendations? Plus, a question about Indian cookbooks.

I'm a meat-eater, although I try to limit the amount of meat I eat for moral/environmental reasons. Now it's almost summer, which is the perfect time for learning new recipes focused on vegetables!
I generally like to cook one-pot meals, because I am (a) lazy and (b) possessed of a very small kitchen. I also really enjoy a wide variety of cuisines and experimenting with things I haven't tried before. So, what I'm really looking for is cookbook recommendations that have a lot of different things for me to try. It doesn't matter what cuisine it's from--Italian, Asian, Indian, African, etc ... I like it all.
(One thing I do not generally like is meat replacements. Tofu is lovely when it's treated like tofu, for example, but I generally do not like it when it's used instead of meat.)
Speaking of Indian cuisines, what is your favorite Indian cookbook? Most of my cookbooks, regrettably, actually belonged to my mom, and I had to return them upon moving to a different city. I used one of Madhur Jaffrey's books a lot, but she has several out--which one do you think is the best and more comprehensive? Or is there a cookbook by a different author that you think is even better than anything Madhur Jaffrey has written?
