Rules:

1. Vegetarian-friendly. No raw eggs, no fish (cooked or not), and obviously no meat. Dairies, etc. are fine. [If you're going to make some comment about "eat moar meat" then fuck off, not interested]
2. Cheap
3. Filling
4. Optional: Can last for up to 10-12 hours unrefrigerated.
5. Optional: Quick[ish] to cook.

Gotten sick of my normal repertoire of pastas and rice, wouldn't be opposed to some new ideas.

Ehh... just make the sauces tomato based. A lot of traditional indian food in fact doesn't have the animal fat that is now often in it. That was a mughal idea, and they were rich. A lot of what you find in typical indian restaurant is Mughal and they were royalty. You can make a lot of different dishes using chick peas or lentils as your "protein" and make the spices and sauce the same way you normally would. Look into middle eastern food as well. Something like a lentil soup can be extremely filling and very nutritionally dense.

Babaghanoush is really easy to make and it keeps pretty well. If you want it really healthy, go easy on the tahini, though tahini really gives it a nice texture and flavor. The recipe is pretty basic and you can easily find several good ones online.

Veggie chili is also a great option in the fall. It's super cheap, healthy, filling, and delicious. You basically cook some onions, carrots, corn, button mushrooms, and red kidney beans in a large pot. I add chickpeas as well sometimes if I want it really hearty. While cooking, add in about 1tsp cumin, 1tsp oregano, and chili powder to taste (if you want it spicier you can use cayenne, too). Add a can of tomato paste and the same amount of water, salt and pepper to taste, and let it simmer a bit so the flavors develop. It'll last in the fridge for a long time and it tastes even better a few days later.

Cooked foods start to exponentially grow in bacterial count after 4 hours, only things that last without the fridge is breads, veggies, fruits for a certain amount of time.

One thing I can suggest for you is a nice hearty veggie stew. Boil up some barley or rice and black beans, put together chopped potatoes, carrots, corn, green beans, some blended tomatoes and chopped/crushed tomatoes and simmer. For seasoning, parsley, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, basil, oregano to taste. I like my veggies crunchier so I only simmer it for about 40 minutes before I dig into my first bowl. You can cook up a huge batch and freeze some while you leave some in the fridge, it soaks up all of the soup so when I reheat, I like to add crushed tomatoes, water and more seasoning to get it the way I like it.
