You can make split pea soup, creamy tomato soup (using tofu), vegetable soup (with loads of veggie and potato), potato and leek soup. 

My boyfriend loves to eat stew tomato with pan fried potato.  Or you can make vegetable stew with rice, veggie curry with potato, carrot and onion, and veggie chili.

You can try foodtv.com or allrecipes.com.

Hope this help.

My favourite lunches in high school were salad wraps and cold fried rice (homemade with vegetarian sausage bits through it).  I also used to take a small snaplock bag filled with dried fruit and nuts.  My sister is a fan of cold pizza for lunch.

What I do for protien, is I make sure I eat a complete protien every day...such as carrots, cabbage.. I have a complete list if you want it. And I <3 seitan. Which is absolutely loaded with protien. And I eat that several times a week...

I think Yves (Spelling?) makes really good veggie burgers and fake bacon.   Some people like their ground beef, but it just seems a bit too meaty to me.   I try not to buy them unless there is a mega sale on since they are quite pricy.

tofu salad is pretty easy. just drain 1 block tofu, mash/crumble, add some veganaise, lemon juice, salt, pepper, paprika, and whatever random veggies you want to put in it. then you can make it a sandwich, or plain, or on crackers...

as far as faux-meat products, I am a fan of tofurky.

veggie sloppy joe mix from fantastic foods is always good. makes a ton, and its good on sandwiches or with fried potatoes/onions.

Thanks for your replies everyone they're awesome and greatly apprciated, but anyways, i was reading somewhere and i guess the "gardenburger" is more natural than the "boca" burger.  Has anybody ever used tuno before.  Its like a tuna sub. and it definately has potential if you are willing to give it a try.

Speed hear- i'm a fan of tofurkey too! i love it with vegenase [or nayonase] and make a big sandwhich out of it. I've had days where i eat tofurkey sandwiches for lunch and dinner! The fantastic taco is excellent too, i used to always eat refried bean burritos but that never satisfied my cravings for tacos- but the fantasic brand taco is the perfect texture. their nature burger is excellent too.
You mentioned that you're concerned about protien- have you thought about drinking protein shakes?  Most grocery stores have a vitamin isle where protein shakes can usually be found. The other day i got  this vegan-friendly stuff called Phyto-soy. The double dutch chocolate is very tastey and has more protien and less sugar than all the other brands i've tried.

These are the fruits and vegetables that are considered "complete" protiens. (meaning they have all the amino acids you need to be able to produce all 23 amino acids....yeah...) The amount of protien in each of these is pretty low compared to eating processed foods (like seitan which has about 50 grams in the amount I eat for a meal, compared to maybe 8-12 grams in the amount of carrots I can eat) But, it is always better to get vitamins and crap from fruits and veggies..haha.

Hehe I like pastrami too, but in the veggie form....I forget which brand makes it. 
For protein I eat

Edamame (green soybeans)
chickpeas
ok-lots of beans, i really like them alot!
Fried tofu stirfry Cheesy
lots of whole grains---a minimal source of protein, but every bit counts! (Irish oatmeal)
nuts! Almonds are my favorites

also, remember that protein is not always all it's cracked up to be...at least from what i've read many people eat too much protein, and then it just ends up being stored as fat.

I'm not a vegetarian or vegan, nor do I see becoming one in the future.  So, I'm not sure if either recipe will work for you in terms of soup, but here's a shot:

Rustic Tomato Soup:
1 chopped whole onion (1 cup)
1/4 cup of fresh Basil chopped or hand torn (set some aside to garnish later)
1/4 cup of fresh Cilantro chopped or hand torn (set some aside to garnish later)
2 cans of whole tomatoes, not stewed
1 or 2 of these
Sea Salt or Kosher Salt to taste
Fresh Cracked pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a good sized pot over med-high heat.  Use a ladle and crush and separate the whole tomatoes, then once it starts to boil, bring down to a simmer.  Add salt and pepper to your taste/liking.  Remember, it's a rustic tomato soup, so it won't look processed like campbells, nor will it be thick. You can eat this with either Ak-Mak crackers from trader joe's or an egg free bread available at whole foods.  If you find vegan friendly croutons, you can drench them a bit in basil infused olive oil and pop into the oven to warm and then use as garnish with the fresh herbs.

In my recipe at home, I use low sodium chicken broth and will top it with a 4 cheese blend that I keep handy at home:  Pecorino Romano, Asiago, Reggiano Parmesan, and a little mozzarella.


*Don't forget, there's always miso soup, and miso with tofu.  Have you had shabu-shabu before?  We have it at home and my hubby loves it.  Instead of bonito flakes (dried fish) for the broth, we use the Wakame seaweed Kelp and cut a 1 x 2 inch of that and place it to boil.  On the platter to boil is chopped up Napa Cabbage, Inoki Mushrooms, Sliced fresh Shitake mushrooms, and Medium firm Tofu, Clear noodle, soba noodle, or sometimes the thick Udon noodle, carrots, etc.  Our dipping sauce is ponzu (citrus/soysauce) with a shredded spicy radish and green onions.  We sit by this portable gas stove in the back patio in the garden with a bowl of rice in one hand and we proceed to pick our vegetables/noodles and let them boil...then dip into the ponzu sauce, lay it on the rice and eat.  We like the paper thin beef shabu shabu as well. So it's fairly animal friendly for you without the meat.

Hope this helped a bit.

Cheers
Tiny

For the most part I find the idea of fake meat to be some what strange, the fact that humans are so used to consuming animals that we have to trick ourselves into eating imposter meat is bizzare to me but I didn'tr try meat until I was 13 and it didn't really interest me by then. The only imposter meat I ate as a child was veggie dogs.YUM. There are lots of yummies out there for vegans and vegetarians, the hardest thing for me to give up is cheese, but I just found the Tofutti" Better thand cream cheese" and it's so yummy, not gross at all you actually can't tell it's not cream cheese ( I sound like a commercial) but it's that good. Try looking for the "How it all vegan " and the"garden of vegan" cookbooks both written by two awesome ladies here in Victoria BC. or try www.Goveg.net

Thanks for the tomato soup recipe!  Once it gets a little chilly.....
Yea I'm not one for fake meat either, sometimes for sloppy joes and veg dogs and gardenburgers can be alright but otherwise...oh i do have to admit I had tuno once, fake tuna and it wasn't half bad in the salad i ate it in

You're welcome.  You know, instead of imitation meat, you might want to look into grilled portobello mushroom burgers.  They're wonderful with a dressing on a bun with carmelized onions, fresh european mix salad for lettuce and dressing!  you could even bake some sweet potato fries!

I find that wraps are a great way to go. Cooked tofu, rice, whatever veggies are lying around and your favourite salad dressing. Corn is awsome in wraps, I find.
Sushi is a recent phase of mine. Basically it's the same concept as wraps, but the material of the wrap is nori and rice.
Taboulh salads are awsome for a light meal. I like making them with quinoa instead of semoule...
Or just normal salads...
For school lunch, I like sandwiches, but it got more complicated once I went vegan. Luckily good old Yves has veggie cold cuts. Really, anything that you normally eat can be suplimented. Soy cheese also exists, but be careful to check the ingredients. Soy cheeses often contain casein, which is derived from milk, and therefore an animal product.
As for soups, I find that once you have the basics for veggie broth down, you can put in whatever veggies you feel work. That's more or less the way I cook...what tastes good together. I tried usuing soy milk once in the place of milk for a cream of mushroom soup recipie, and it turned out really really awsome, even though the consistency was a bit odd...Just make sure it isn't vanilla flavoured.

Yves, by far, has the best veggie dogs.  Although I just tried the quorn ones, and they aren't too bad.  I've always used morningstar bacon, will have to try Yves out though.

As for vegan lunches, I usually snack on veggies all day :-)  Since I'm octo-lavo I also indulge in egg salad sandwiches.  I do have an excellent recipe for black bean soup- will post it when I get home :-)

Funny...I'm quite the happy omnivore.  However, as much as I love eggs and things made with eggs: cakes sweets breads items with soy lecithin.  I have to avoid them, food allergy in addition to shellfish.  Only not lethal, just makes my skin terribly miserable.

if you have a crockpot around, vegan chili is really easy (and cheap) to make.  basically, there's a million variations but I'll turn the crockpot on in the morning and throw in a couple cans of undrained stewed or diced tomatoes, a can of drained and rinsed black beans, canned or frozen corn, chopped onion, garlic and bell peppers, about 1/2 to 2/3 of a cup of textured vegetable protein (available at health food stores, local co-op, etc.) and cumin, chilli powder, and cayenne (if you like it hot).  I leave it on low all day while at work and come home to a delicious dinner.  if you have more time, sauteeing the garlic and fresh veggies beforehand might add to the flavor.

I loooove Morningstar brand mini Corn Dogs.

Easy veggie luches- all-natural peanut butter and any flavor jam sandwiches, with veggies and fruit.

Get a pita and FILL it with lettuce, mushrooms, cucumber, tomato, onion if you like it, bell pepper, etc. Top with your favorite dressing. Make sure to package all your ingredients separately- the tomato and mushroom will make everything squishy.

One of my favorite salads is my version of Spinach-Artichoke dip. I do raw spinach, quarter a can of artichoke hearts, slice black olives, and top with Parmesan cheese. (You could use vegan cheese or leave it off entirely).

Any hints for becoming vegan??  I've been a lacto-ovo for 13 years and have been wanting to go vegan on a temporary basis (to detox myself) for awhile.  It bugs me how much my body craves dairy.  I work a very hectic schedule and am married to an anti-vegetable/beans guy.  I also live in the midwest where there are few places to go out and eat vegan.  Thoughts?

I just discovered the amazing "mock tuna salad"

1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed

2 Tablespoons Veganaise, or mayo or other vegan mayo

2 Tablespoons Sweet Relish

1 Teaspoon Brown Spicy Mustard

Some Sea Vegetable Flakes, Kelp Powder (optional)

Salt and Pepper (to taste)

Acually, the whole thing is to taste, I like it a little on the sweet relish side. 

Anyway, mash up the chickpeas, add the mayo, relish, mustard, salt and pepper, and kelp if you got it (gives a more fishy taste).  This stuff seriously has a texture like tuna.  Sure, it's been a long, LONG time since I have had tuna, but it's close enough for me.

Serve chilled on bread of choice.  I've been eating this stuff with some melty vegan cheese on a pita for an ultimate mock tuna melt.  I had a horrible experience with Tuno, and this satisfies my craving for tuna salad,  It's great as a take-along lunch, or a quick snack!

Or, I go with a pita/veggie wrap thing; hummus on the side so it doesn't get soggy.  Also, Ithird/fourth/tenth the fake deli meat.  I make a sammich, and use tiny jars for my veganaise and mustard so the bread isn't soggy.  Add an organic apple juice box and a bowl of fruit and you got a vegan lunch!  Veggie wraps with vegan cream cheese are really yummy, too!  Or you could try cooked and rechilled mock duck marinated in greek oil/seasoning and use it as fake lamb in a gyro!  This is sooooo yummy!


Oh, and by the way, much to my dismay, almost all breaded fake chicken  nuggets and patties are NOT vegan (eggs in the breading).  However, a brand called "Health Is Wealth" makes vegan "Buffalo Wings."  They are soooooo good.   Cheesy

I also reccommend Fantastic Foods Soup Bowls.  http://fantasticfoods.com/

They are ALL vegetarian, and most vegan.  A lot of the soups are ramen noodles with veggie broth and veggies, and some are more substantial, like split pea soup. 

Sorry for the SUPER long reply.  I get really excited discussing Vegan Food!!!!!

Ooooh!  And I forgot to mention cookies!  You've gotta have cookies with a lunch, hehee!!!

Alternative Baking Company http://www.planetdistribution.com/alternativebaking/index.cfm

They make THE BEST vegan cookies EVER.  I almost had an orgasm when I tasted the Snickerdoodl cookie.  Seriously, my boyfriend (also vegan) was like, "Should I leave you two alone?"  Soooooooooooo good.  Soft!  Chewy!  Lots of flavors!  And Calories :/  but it's a nice treat once in a while. 

Newman O's are a nice alternative to Oreo's.  I keep hearing that Oreo's are vegan, then they aren't, then they are, then they're not, so I gave up and eat Newman O's.  Ginger O's are the best.  It's like a ginger snap plus an oreo.  yum!  Ok.  Now I'll stop.

I told you I freak out about Vegan Food.  Food is my porn, I love it too much and can discuss it/look at websites about it all day long!!!!  Grin

I drain & rinse chieck peas, smash em  in a bowl with some roasted garlic, a squirt of lemom juice & salt & peper to taste.  Realy good as a snack on crackers.   I love it on a whole wheat tortilla with fresh spinach.   =) 
If you add Tahini it would be hummus
TinyTallGirl .... is  Tahuni spicy...I wasn't sure if the kids could eat it comfortably.  I've had prepackaged hummas... So I didn't know how it would compare to fresh.     
I really love INdian Food... ( th elittle I've had a cheance to try...) I'm gonna have to look up some recipies & dabble 

Not at all...it's a derived from sesame seeds, it's a sesame seed paste.  Popular for Hummus....babaganus h, etc; Middle easter/Mediterranean dishes..
Also for wraps...you can look into the middle eastern flat bread callled Lavash.  I love eating that with the Avjar spread.
