One of my favorite dishes is to make some brown rice or millet. While that is cooking, in another nonstick skillet add some black beans, shredded coconut, onion, cubed and peeled sweet potato, cauliflower pieces, and chopped broccoli. Add some vegetable broth and plant milk (about 1/4 to 1/2 cup) to your veggies, and add some spices like garlic powder, curry powder, garam masala, cardamon, ginger. Simmer/saute for about fifteen or twenty minutes (helps to have a lid over it) until everything is soft. Scoop this mixture over the rice or millet. Add a pinch of salt and pepper if you wish.
For breakfast, try toasts with canned baked beans on top, or hummus. Or try a chickpea flour omelet with tomatoes, salsa, and spinach tucked into it. There are tons of recipes for chickpea flour omelets. And pancake recipes, oh my, there are hundreds of vegan pancake recipes to try, from banana rice flour, to chocolate, to blue berry buckwheat, to coconut pancakes, sweet potato pancakes, zucchini pancakes, carrot or pumpkin pancakes, even peanut butter pancakes. I love to make tempeh "bacon" strips marinaded in dijon mustard and maple syrup and then roasted or broiled in the oven to go with my pancakes.
Have you ever made a vegan pot pie? I fill mine with white beans, yellow squash, onion, potatoes, carrots, green beans, vegan country gravy, and have fun making a homemade vegan crust. Heck you can even make a vegan pie crust with coconut oil or coconut butter in place of Earth balance if you aren't into vegan butter.
Chickpea salad sandwiches with Just Mayo or Vegannaise. It's the vegan version of egg salad. I mash some chickpeas, celery, vegan mayo together and add ground black pepper, then add my spread to my sandwich bread/pita etc.
And soups! Pureed white bean carrot soup is awesome, or chickpea sweet potato tomato soup. Or crockpot chili vegan style. I use bulgur wheat as a "ground beef" in mine.
How about toasting some buns and adding some broiled portobella mushroom caps marinaded with homemade bbq sauce? And pile on some roasted peppers and onion. Have some corn chips with.
Your local library most likely has some vegan cookbooks to check out for ideas. There are so many different styles of vegan cookbooks now for different tastes. Not all are health obsessed.
