Dreaming of Ottolenghi and Amada; stuck on frozen gyoza
December 29, 2013 9:24 PM Subscribe
I love cooking, but it's been a while since I've cooked on a regular basis (besides throwing together ingredients for salads and pastas) and even longer since I put together a proper meal with courses. I'm a pretty decent cook (and I have a list of favorite blogs, like Smitten Kitchen and 101 Cookbooks) but nothing's clicking, and I want recipes that are complicated and fun and delicious for a change of pace! And so I turn to you, AskMetafilter: help me find awesome, vegetarian, delicious, adventurous dishes to usher in 2014.

-Must be vegetarian (absolutely no fish/seafood; dairy of any sort is totally fine, as are eggs.) All vegetables are welcome; seitan is not.
-Would prefer that cream not be a primary ingredient for the sake of my new year's resolutions, but if you can make an argument for something super indulgent, sweet.
-I have a pretty decent kitchen of staples and more-than-staples but not a lot of access to specialty Asian ingredients aside from a Japanese market.
-There is one of me so the ability to store and reheat said food is welcome.
- Extra bonus points for Ottolenghi recipes that you've tried and tested; I have half of his Guardian series bookmarked but to be honest I'm a little scared of them!
