I'm fond of pasta, braised rice dishes like pilafs or risotti, etc.
Some of the axes along which to vary these on are: fat (e.g., olive
oil, butter), grain (rice variety, bulgur, millet, quinoa, cous cous,
orzo or other pastas; these have a big impact on texture), as well as
other additions (dairy, vegetables (sauteed, braised, etc.), fungi,
legumes (chickpeas in pilaf, mmm), herbs (mint, basil) and spices
(cumin, coriander, fennel), etc.).

Also, there are plenty of other legumes than soy, and plenty of other
ways to prepare them than curd: spiced, pureed, cold salads, hot
salads, thick soups, thin soups, etc.
