    Some traditional Rosh Hashanah favorites - carrot tzimmes, kugels, are easy to prepare as vegeatrian dishes. For main dishes, though, rather than trying to adapt a traditional Jewish meat-based menu,I'd suggest that you seek out vegetarian Thanksgiving-type recipes. For instance, one of the Moosewood cookbooks (sorry, I forget which one) has a terrific recipe for stuffed acorn squash. Especially with Rosh Hashanah coming so late this year, the autumnal quality of these foods would seem especially seasonal and appropriate.

      Check out the Zuni Cafe Cookbook and Deborah Madison's "Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone."

      Zuni has some great recipes for lentils, wonderful-looking recipes for making gnocci, and some recipes (I think in the dessert section) that incorporate dates and pomegranites--both of which are traditional for Rosh Hashana.

      Madison's book is a good all-purpose reference, whether or not you are vegetarian.

      Good luck!
