I personally am not a vegetarian or vegan, but I have found a couple vegetarian/vegan friendly things that have really helped me!
First off, I would make sure you are consuming enough fat. Avocados are really good, so are coconuts! Have you tried coconut milk? Not the thick, canned variety(that is good too, though it usually is used in cooking rather than drinking.) They usually sell cartons of coconut milk next to the rice milk, soy milk, lactose free milks, etc in the fridge section. I buy unsweetened coconut milk, and it tastes just like regular milk(has no strong coconut flavor at all). And it really fills me up! Also, try drizzling a little bit of olive oil over your foods. Olive oil is really healthy and fills you up as well. Eating olives(low sodium) can also be a nice addition to salads.
Where does your protein come from? I have found that for me personally, if I do not eat protein with my fat then I will be hungry quicker. If I am correct, I have heard that sprouts have a lot of protein in them.
These are just some things that I have learned myself, that might help you as well! The biggest tip is that if you are hungry, then eat. By no means should you starve yourself. Remember that vegetables have a lot of water in them. You might need to either up your veggie intake or increase your fat intake(avocados, coconut, olive oil, etc.) in order to get full. Also, drink water!
