She is a vegan. I'm not a vegan.
My first suggestion is to give up. It's not going to work out. I would probably have an easier time trying to date an avowed socialist than I would dating a vegan. You can mutually decide to not talk about something, but what you eat is what you eat.
I am inclined to agree, that is a major compatibility issue. More so, I would argue, than politics or religion combined.
Fuark, I'm not trying to marry the girl.

You could do some eggplant parm minus the parmesean cheese (I know, I know). Nothing gets a house smelling better than freshly baked bread, so you could do that. There are plenty of options. One thing I learned about cooking for people with dietary needs (I have an ex that was allergic to wheat, soy AND dairy) is Google should be your best friend.
If I can't say I am good with Italian cooking then I can't say I'm good with cooking
Spaghetti Squash is definitely in the lead right now. That was one of the first things I found
... Eggplant Parm, Man... I would die a little inside if I had to make it without Fontinella and parm cheese
I didn't think of baking bread! Thats an awesome idea.

(maybe a touch of lemon juice?)
Stir until the consistency of the original. It's good in lasagna.
Only issue is I don't eat soy.... or atleast I try very hard to not eat soy and I don't want to serve something that I'm not going to thoroughly enjoy
