There are many good suggestions here, but if you are like me, I need a replacement for the carbs i am used to eating. So here is my 2 cents. :)
Grate cauliflower on the large holes of a grater to replace rice. I use it in a stir fry with other low carb veggies and some marinated tofu. Also, steam chunks of cauliflower and mash for a potato replacement.
If you usually eat oats, I have found that chia seeds soaked in a sugar free chocolate or vanilla almond milk is a good alternative. I do eat this cold with a little unsweetened coconut. It's a good breakfast, with a pudding like consistency.
Smoothies. Everyone's suggested it. They're the best. I use whey protein since I am not vegan, but there are a lot of options, and some health food stores will have single serve packets so you can try them out without having to buy a huge canister of stuff you can't stand.
There are a lot of veggies, (broccoli included) that actually have a significant amount of protein. If you eat a variety of colorful foods, your protein needs should not be an issue.
Have a plant strong day!
