Vegetarian main dishes?

I need to make a vegetarian main dish for a crowd, but I have some strict guidelines. It would be great if it were fairly cheap, had some sort of protein (cheese, egg, or bean, although I'm open to tofu) and required less than an hour of cooking time.
-no pasta
-no risotto
-no curry
Can you help? Thanks in advance!

Yama's - first visit

That's so interesting about the kimchi issue at the Hanover location. I always order kimchi at the West Leb location and they always bring a big bowYl of it. At the Hanover location, they did give it to me (maybe our waiter was different from yours), but the serving was TINY! I agree with you about still going to the West Leb one. The Hanover one still has to work out some kinks.

No relation to the Yama in Andover, MA, but I hear that one is pretty good, too. The Yama's in Hanover and West Lebanon, NH have sushi, but there is also a big emphasis on Korean food- hence, you get the little dishes at the beginning of the meal (banchan).

Yama's - first visit

Yama's is great! There are two of them: one near West Lebanon and another in Hanover. The menu is a little more extensive and the atmosphere a little brighter in Hanover, but I still prefer the one closer to West Lebanon because it feels so intimate. My favorites: kimchi pancake, bibimbab( beef, egg, vegetables, served with rice), bulgoki, and oyako donburi (chicken with vegetables, egg, and a slightly sweet sauce all served on top of rice- I usually can't do sweet, but this hits the spot.). Besides serving inexpensive, good food, Yama has great service. You can tell the workers there really want to please you. I'm just surprised they haven't starting serving dessert yet. And oh yeah, they don't take reservations.

Some other Hanover places to try: Jewel of India (in Hanover- not the best service, but really tasty food: the Vegetarian Appetizer platter is a must), Umpleby's (bakery in Hanover family run and operated), and Lou's (A Dartmouth tradition, it's a quality diner with always tasty specials like Sweet potato pancakes, poached eggs on whole grain english muffin with sauteed spinach and local cabot cheese. Their blueberry pancakes are AMAZING- only downside is that they charge extra for maple syrup!).

And about the Thai place near West Lebanon, I'm not sure where that is. The one in Hanover, Mai Thai, is pretty mediocre, although their Pad Thai is the best in town (Yama's and the Orient also serve Pad Thai).
