I'm an 18-year-old somewhat new vegan and cook. As such, I'm trying to kind of build up a repertoire of basic recipes that I can throw together without carefully following a recipe, little planning, etc. Your standard weeknight lunch/supper sort of meals. ;D I'm a mean hand when it comes to baking, so baked goods and breakfasts are easy stuff, and I've had some luck with soup/stew/dhal sort of recipes.
It'd be great if you could list a couple of the recipes you fall back on, time after time. Preferably recipes that are suitable for a newbie cook and which don't take too much time to prepare. Beans and rice are great, but I could use some inspiration as to how to spice those suckers up and make them tasty, hehe. Stuff with a bit of a kick is best... comfort food is okay from time to time, but the spicy stuff is lots of fun!
