I recently made black beans with rice and it was soooo delicious and filling. I eat a half cup and am full for hours.

Popcorn Cauliflower easy to make and a very tasty snack. Can be addictive.

Rather that cut and paste here is a LINK

I usually make mine plain without the spices. Just a little salt when done cooking.

I love a super-simple recipe like this. Sounds wonderful!

I also am not a fan of peanut butter or almond butter (I know, weird) and want something that'll give me a sense of satiety.

Any ideas?
Welcome. My cardiologist recommended, no DEMANDED, I go on a plant based diet. I bought the Forks Over Knives cookbook.

One of favorites is insanely simple-frozen grapes. Nature's Popsicles. Wash them, let them dry, put snack sized bunches, on or off the stems, in baggies and freeze.

My idea of what a snack is and your idea may be different but lately I have been making biscotti from the cookbook. It's a hit in our home. I break them into bite sized pieces.

It seems most of the bars and cookies have peanut, almond, or tahini as the glue to hold them together since they have no oil. Maybe you already know this, but I learned the hard way on some cookies, that they will stick. Parchment paper is expensive so I bought some reusable silicone mats.

If you can get your hands on a food dehydrator you can make awesome kale, sweet potato, and just about any other veggie and fruit into a chip.

A low-low-low fat alternative to peanut butter is PB2.

You're right about nuts and seeds. I get the strangest looks at the Winco Supermarket when I buy 10 pounds each of raw cashews and almonds. I eat a handful now and then, but do try to watch it.

Best of luck to you. Take it from me, after having quintuple bypass surgery then ten years later having several grafts clog and getting angina, you're doing yourself a favor.

Nut butter(peanut, almond, cashew,etc) on top of celery sticks and add goji berries.
Fire ants on a log!

You said you wanted something that gives you satiety--legumes are quite filling because they're high in protein. You could have fava bean dip (popular in the Middle East), white bean dip (Italian recipe), and Texas caviar (mix of black-eyed peas, black beans, cilantro, sometimes corn and bell peppers) with tortilla chips, pita toasts, and cut raw veggies.

You can make your own trail mix with dried fruits, coconut flakes, dark chocolate chips (they have vegan brands), nuts, and oats.

There are many brands of vegan yogurt made with either coconut, soy, or rice milk. Toss in berries rather than buying it with the fruit already mixed in, as manufacturers include lots of sugar and corn syrup.

Up here it is a bit pricey, but was very cheap in Texas and New Mexico.
I second that emotion! And the high fiber content in a jicama makes it so filling.
