I haven't really used a recipe book too much (that always feels like even MORE work in the kitchen for some reason), but I have found these AMAZING sauces at natural grocers that basically make a meal out of any veggies and meat/legume combo you want. The brand is Maya Kaimal and literally I grab a frozen veggies mix, some lentils, stock of some kind and toss it all together, serving over rice. They have about 9 different sauces at my natural grocers and they're all their own unique meal. Hope that's helpful. Also the instant pot makes the most perfect rice ever!!!
