Request go to Vegan Recipes (no dairy)

Please share your recipes.
I have looked in vegetarian recipe books but cheese or dairy is usually an ingredient. I am having dinner guests and am at a loss.
Please pass on/share your favourite no matter how basic or elaborate.
Much appreciated.

I think the term you should be looking up is "vegan recipes". There are a million sites with these and they'll fit the bill of no dairy.

Sweet potato diced up, drizzled with olive oil and seasonings and baked in the oven. Cooks awfully quick so keep an eye on them.
Or diced up sweet potato, add cinnamon and honey and baked in the oven.

Thanks everyone for all the great suggestions. They are all recipes I will make.
Appreciate you all sharing. This is a new cooking world for me obviously but I feel I am getting a handle on it with your help.
Thank you all.

I'm not all vegan, but mostly eat vegetables, fruit, whole grains, beans/lentils and a few nuts and seeds. I tend to keep things simple, so I wouldn't be very good at serving dinner guests.

Anyhow for something more elaborate, here's a few Canadian websites containing vegan recipes.

Try these Vegan Puff Pastries:
1. Tomato pizza sauce base, baby spinach, roast capsicum, roast asparagus, caramelised onion, sundried tomato, mozzarella sheese, salt and pepper and Italian herbs.
2. Home made basil pesto base, pine nut, mozzarella sheese, salt and pepper.
All made on sheets of puff pastry. Roll them up then slice off circles and bake the circles flat on a tray with baking paper.

We eat vegetarian at home fairly often as well including some of the recipes mentioned here already, especially lots of oven roasted veggies similar to what Raggie mentioned like sweet potato, butternut squash, broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, brussel sprouts, green beans etc. Paired with potatoes, rice, mushrooms and baked or grilled Tofu strips.

Attached a couple of our recent home made vegetarian plates for inspiration

If we are posting actual recipes I like the sauce in this one but I do it with sliced mushrooms and chinese broccoli Szechuan Tofu & Green Bean Stir-Fry

My other pick would be Butter Chicken curry, but where the recipe calls for chicken I'd use fried tofu or soy nuggets, and for cream/yogurt, I'd use silken tofu and a scoop of cashew butter, which makes the sauce absolutely addictive!

3 Tbsp oil
500 g red onion, shredded (one big one)
- on medium heat, dry out/caramelize the onion in the oil, 30 mins

1½ Tbsp ginger paste
3 Tbsp garlic paste
1 Tbsp dried fenugreek leaves
½ Tbsp chili powder (adjust to taste; this is hot!)
½ Tbsp cumin
½ Tbsp garum masala
1 tsp salt
- add the above and stir and toast briefly until fragrant, a minute or two

798 ml can crushed tomatoes
1½ Tbsp tomato paste
1/4 cup cashew butter
300 g silken tofu
- add the above and simmer briefly; done! Well now you simmer in your tofu or tvp chunks.

always extra firm tofu as we don't enjoy the softer stuff much. The taste and texture of the breaded ones isn't far off from chicken nuggets
