Default Need a quick but amazing vegetarian main dish

About ten minutes ago, I somehow managed to get myself roped into part of the cooking committee for the yearly dinner put on for the teachers at our elementary school. The problem? It's tomorrow, my day is pure chaos, and I don't do a ton of vegetarian cooking so no real go-to recipes here.

So...a fairly quick but amazing main dish that could serve, say, 8-10 people? WWYD?

The easiest thing I can think of is Lentil Enchiladas. Make a double batch of this recipe (which has great reviews ) then roll into tortillas & top with canned sauce (and optional cheese) and bake at 350 until heated through. I've been making this for years & my meat eating friends love it.

Yum. That sounds good. Canned enchilada sauce, I'm assuming you mean?

What about a bean soup? You could throw it in the crock pot and it'd be pretty hearty.

DIY tavo salds, aka haystacks.

For 8-10 people, open up 3 big cans of Brook's chili beans. Add in 2 big cans of regried beans. Stir together in pot while warming.

Cut up 6 tomatoes, get a can of chopped olives, a bag of shredded lettuce, 5 bags of corn chips or tortilla chips. Have a can of sour cream.

Each person can make their own diy from the ingredients you provide.
