Most vegetarian starters make perfectly good snacks and main courses when you just adjust the quantities to suit.
Starters, or better to think 'apetisers', should compliment any main course to follow.
If the main course is a heavy meal, then a light starter may be best. Alternately a light or delicate main course may benefit from a hearty broth to start.
Avoid having similar dishes through courses; ie an egg starter followed by omelette for main. Or a cheese starter, followed by lasagne with cheese sauce topping.
