What to eat?
Well, yes, I'm also a herbivore. I've been looking though various websites for veg*an recipes but there are way too many of them and I don't know what to choose. Also, most of them look to be very complicated foods to make... I've done very very little cooking in my life, maybe that's why it looks so hard...
So I ask you folks, what do you eat & would recommend me to try?
PS: What are nuts? I know peanuts and some others but what other nuts are there? What can I make of nuts?
PPS: Same question about beans.

I've only been vegan for about 4 months, but here's some recommendations:
Couple standards for me:
1) Burritos - tortillas, couscous, taco mix, spicy black beans, hot sauce.
2) Frozen veggies. Throw a little soy sauce in a pan, toss in some pepper flakes and just heat em up.
3) Hummus. Super easy to make. Blend 1 can garbanzo beans, 2 cloves chopped garlic, 1/4 cup lemon juice, 1/4 cup water, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 cup tahini (sesame seed paste; this is optional as it takes good w/o it). Spread on bread, bagels, pita, whatever. Throw it in a pita with some soy cheese and lettuce.
4) Guacamole. Mash up 2 avocados, 2 cloves garlic, 1/4 cup lemon juice, 1/4 tsp. salt.
5) Start growing sprouts. They are super easy, and add a nice crunch to whatever you put them on.
6) Pasta! Never gets old. Mix some flax seed in with the sauce.
7) Roasted vegetables. Easy as all get-out. Chop up a bunch of veggies. Anything from potatoes, yams, carrots, asparagus, to garlic cloves. Roll them around in a bowl to coat with olive oil. Add a little salt. Bake at 425 for about 20 minutes, or until tender.
8) PBJ - the old standby.
Also get Erin Pavlina's book, "Vegan Family Favorites." There's some really easy stuff to make in there. 1) is from the book. Great recipes for pancakes in there too.
