Although I follow MacDougall's diet principles, I HATE his recipes too!
I have yet to find one main dish meal that tastes half decent. As you
said, they are always too bland or too spicy.
However, there are many low-fat vegetarian cookbooks on the market and I
have found lots of great recipes in them that follow MacDougall's
guidelines (or that can be easily adapted). My 3 favorites, which I
suggest you try, are: Eat More, Weigh Less (Ornish), 1,001 Low-Fat
Vegetarian Recipes (Spitler), and Moosewood Restaurant Low Fat
Favorites. I think you will find something you like in them!
