I'm cooking a meal for four as a late leisurely lunch. I'm the only veggie I don't mind cooking meat but I don't want to cook two entirely separate meals.

Preferably not curry as I always make a curry or pasta or risotto as I think it's boring!

No one particularly but I'm not sure how open they'd be to trying tofu etc.

No one is particularly fussy that should say!

Toad in the hole? Could do with regular or veggie sausages, with roast veg and mash.

A homemade quiche with interesting salad and baguette?

Pies made with ready-rolled pastry are astonishingly easy as can be happily adapted to do some meat and some veggie. I would:

Fry up some favourite vegetables (I'd choose mushrooms leeks and peppers but your faves could be anything) with seasoning. That could be done in advance. As could preparing some sautéed bits of chicken for them and something else for you (Quorn? Hardboiled quails eggs? Bits of halloumi??)

Mix appropriate quantities of veg with these and moisten with a few spoonfuls from a jar of your favourite cook-in sauce (just enough that it doesn't seem too dry, not too much)

Cut a ready rolled sheet of pastry into 4. Place each in turn on a greased baking sheet, Heap each with a helping of your mix in the centre. Bring the corners up to make a sack shape and squeeze together.

Pop in the oven for 20 mins at 220c while you steam some side veg.

What about Greek lamb and veg skewers (just veg for you) served with jazzed up couscous or some of a wild rice mix and a salsa?

Or piri piri chicken (butternut squash or tofu for you) skewers. Serve with rice and some greens.

Or do a veggie Greek spinach and feta pie thing.

Or a nice hearty Spanish tomato and butter bean stew, take yours out and then fry up chorizo and add to the stew for the others. Serve with crusty bread.
