Thank you so much for your quick responses. I am going to enjoy being able to learn more about what I can cook for her. I attempted vegan cupcakes for her birthday and they flopped horrible...she still ate them but we needed a spoon! She does alot of the cooking when she is home. Don't want it to sound like she is catered to! Just want as many ingredients as possible for her to chose from.
I like to keep lots of pastas around. If you need a quick meal, cooking pasta and adding some beans and veggies is pretty simple. I also try to keep canned tomatoes around, as they make great additions to pastas.
I also think it's great that you're trying to support her! I live with my mother, and while she has recently gone vegetarian (which I greatly appreciate), she constantly puts down my vegan food.
No need to panic. You already have great options for her. Everyone is at a different stage in the vegan diet. For me it's mostly fresh produce, grains, fruits, nuts and beans. You have all of those. She should be able to whip up a meal from those staples.
BTW - it's awesome that you are concerned about having things there for her to eat. Hopefully she is helping with the ideas as well.

My daughter became a vegan in September of 2011. Although she was in college then and has since graduated she is home frequently and I need to be able to keep food around for her. I would appreciate ideas, suggestions on what that might be. So far quonia, lots of veggies, black beans, corn tortilla's, the spices for curry, brown rice, vegan cheese, almond milk are all always kept around for her. Any other advice would be appreciated. I am going to load The Joy of Vegan Cooking on my kindle when I get home from work today...help!
