In a few weeks I will have been vegan for half my life.

I went vegan after stumbling upon a website. I was looking for pictures of cute animals on google, before there was Pinterest or Reddit for that, and came across a website that had a page about how we exploited and harmed every animal that we harm. I went through every page on the site, starting with the charismatic animals and ending with the farm animals. I couldn't be part of it anymore. I didn't know what veganism was but I decided I had to be a vegetarian and not eat dairy or eggs. I was relieved to find out other people were doing the same.

I'm in the market for high-protein, low calorie, easy recipes.

I am just curious, how old are you now?)

As for the easiest high-protein food (not sure about calories, though) - go for lentils - the red ones. It takes just 10 min too cook.

I figured I'd be vague to not pin down my age. I went vegan as a teenager though. :)

I do need to add more lentil recipes to my collection. I didn't like them as a kid so there's always a mental speed bump for me, even though I love every lentil dish I make (except once, I added pea protein to split pea soup to try to make it more protein dense and it made it grainy AF).

I just eat my lentils bland😃 Well, with boiled brocolli or with some fresh veggies. I am too lazy too cook and unfortunatelly my bf doesn't like cooking either.

Lentils are the bomb.

For western European style green lentils, I love Deborah Madsen's recipe as a starting point. It's very flexible to substitutions or removing some of the vegetables.

For red lentils, I imagine that RegularFeminist was describing a recipe like this one, but there's so much variation.
