I recommend a couple of cookbooks, that will give you new ideas about vegetarian cooking - try not to make meat substitutes, which are usually weird and never really satisfy but to find new sources of complete protein.
For the science of it, which is important, i recommend Laurel's Kitchen cookbook. It;s heavily hippyish but very well researched as to what you need to eat not to have any health problems. You won;t lack for iron or protein or other substances if you use the principles there. The recipes aren't the greatest, though they do give an idea how to think about meals.
But the very best vegetarian cookbook i ever used is Ottolenghi's Plenty. I highly recommend it. There's a review of it on this site that i wrote some time ago. It has recipes for real food based on traditional principles (most people in the world were vegetarian by necessity and there are many cuisines that have evolved with no meat in sight.
The one thing not to do is to make meals as you used to (with vegetables as side dishes) minus the meat. Make the vegetables interesting and satisfying and the main dish. And do some research on traditional cooking from places where meat was scarce for the majority of people. - not just asia but also europe. Look at Italian traditional dishes: Pasta and ceci, lentil soup on toasted stale bread rubbed with garlic, olive oil crust turnovers with endive, garlic, pine nuts and olives, polenta with cheese, pasta e fagioli, minestrone... all of these have complete protein through combinations of grains, legumes and seeds, cheese, etc.
Vegetarian meals should be MORE interesting, not less, because meat is good just as it is, but vegetarian meals need combinations of foods that can be really interesting.
And you don;t need any special equipment.
