Got recipes for informal dinner gatherings?

Seeking yummy vegetarian entrees that don't need to be eaten immediately after cooking.

I'm having a lot of informal gatherings at my house -- folks showing up in a three-hour window around the dinner hour.
Since people aren't all sitting down at the same time, a lot of recipes won't work. (Anything that says "serve immediately" -- i.e. french onion soup or spaghetti -- is out.) So far I've tried quiche, corn chowder, tortilla soup, and bean/barley soup, and have been thinking about trying tamales, lasagna, and tom kha soup.
This is where you come in: I'm looking for inspiration. Do you know a great veggie soup recipe? Or ideas for other veggie entrees that can survive a couple hours on the hob? I don't mind if the cooking process takes a long time.
p.s. Cookbook recommendations, veg or non-veg, would be cool too. I am just beginning my exploration of this world of cooking. So far I've been getting a big kick out of A New Way To Cook and Wild Fermentation.
