-any stir fry, you can basically substitute meat for firm tofu
-would you eat refried beans? I love veggie burritos with lettuce, cheese, tomato, salsa, sour cream, guacamole and refried beans.

No beans at all?!? what about lentils, chick peas etc? Do you eat tofu/tempeh?
We are vegan but not big recipe users so I don't know if I'd be much help! But in the last couple of weeks we've had
Creamy pasta (with coconut cream)
Nachos (with beans but could be done with just veg, mushroom etc)
Beetroot chips with tahini and salad
Curried vegetable pie
Pasta with pesto
Tahini and miso veg/tofu bake
Stir fry with rice noodles
Tempeh "sausages" with mash and steamed veg
...I can't remember what else!

Do you like tofu? I think it's best marinated before use.
I like to marinte it in soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic, ginger and oregano. Then just use it in a stir fry.
If making fried rice i tend to marinate it in soy sauce and sesame oil.
Salt and pepper tofu is nice.
Hmm.. I don't know.... What sort of recipes were you after?

I have a confession...I've never had tofu before. But I think the marinated kind sounds good.
I'm not sure what I was after exactly, just wondering what people who don't eat meat had for dinner (sounds ridiculous I know I'm sorry!)
Perhaps some child friendly ideas, do they eat all of the above mentioned?

Haha.. Yep my kids eat tofu. They don't like the salt and pepper one though as it's rather spicy.
Some dinners we've had of late:
Potato and spinach curry
Stir fry with onion, chuy sum, pak choy, broccolini, broccoli, frys 'chicken' style strips, rice noodles and black peeper sauce.
Laksa with tofu and vegies
Nachos (made with 4 bean mix though)
Roasted vegetables and tofu with lemon and thyme.

Any Asian style dish - stir fries, curries, fried rice - take out the meat - add in tofu, beans, lentils.
Stews, soups - take out the meat, replace it.
Meat is just one component of most meals and really can easily be removed.
