Weekly meals

As a vegetarian/vegan this is generally what i eat every week.  It is always quinoa with some sort of peas/beans and a vegetable.  I hate to cook so this is basically what i can handle :-).  I have tried loads of recipes and they have ended up in the bin. Needless to say I basically stick with what I know.
