We do eat some meat and dairy.

The blog called A Year of Slow Cooking had a Tangy Black Bean Soup the other day that looked simple and delicious.

Lentil stew. Let me know if you want my recipe...I image it's also somewhere in the archives.
Sweet potato, carrot, apple, and red lentil soup. That one is on allrecipes.com.
Chili, obviously.
More Make It Fast, Cook It Slow (book) has a black bean, chicken, and salsa soup. I like it because you can use soaked dried beans instead of canned.
Simply in Season (book) has many good, healthy recipes, including a Veggie Burrito Bake, Super Stuffed Tortillas, and a Black Bean and Rice Skillet. All have cheese, tho.

These are so yummy : http://eatathomecooks.com/2009/05/lentil-tacos.html
And CHEAP! I make our own whole wheat tortillas, so it's even cheaper/healthier.

http://eatathomecooks.com/ has LOTS of tasty bean recipes. They also have weekly "thrifty" menus that include many meatless (or easily made that way) options.
