Head over to vegatarian and vegan moms here on CM....LOTS of recipes there.

These sites below helped me when I first went vegan.

my personal favorite (need to scroll down to the bottom to find the categories):

Also if you can get a good cookbook, that will be very helpful to you.

It depends so much on what you like to eat...

Colcannon tends to be cheap --it was Irish peasant food in the 1700s. Mostly, it's potatoes and cabbage, with or without cheese.

Vegan spaghetti sauce (can of tomatoes, sauteed onions and garlic, herbs) with spaghetti and a tossed salad with homemade dressing

Bean and rice burritos

Beans and rice (or Jamaican peas and rice)... which are pretty much sauteed onions and garlic, spices, beans and rice, sometimes with tomatos and sometimes not...

Do you have a bulk food store nearby? I don't know if you're into meat analogs at all, but anything that calls for a ground beef substitute can be made with tvp very cheaply.
