ISO weeknight vegetarian cookbook

Like the title says, I'm looking for a weeknight vegetarian cookbook. I'm not a vegetarian, but I seldom cook meat these days (although vegan need not apply). I'm cooking for one, if that makes a difference.

I had these books for years. I hope they are still around.
P.S What does weeknight mean?

I'm looking for recipes that I can make after I get home from work in 30-45 minutes, without having to stop at the store.

I didn't see any of those titles at the bookstore this morning. I ended up with 15-Minute Vegetarian by Geiskopf-Hadler and Toomay.

They are old books of the 70s and 80s. I particulary like Diet for a small planet because it gives a lot of information on how to combine ingredients to make up for proteins. It was a million copy bestseller and it's a pocket book. If you can find it, it's worth the hunt.

I'm not a vegetarian, but I like meatless dishes. My most-used vegetarian cookbook is Main-Course Vegetarian Pleasures by Jeanne Lemlin. The recipes are easy and more mainstream than some of the goofier vegetarian cookbooks out there.
