It is not a diet, it is something that I need to do. No dairy, no tofu, no oils, no spices of any kinds, only salt. Only fruits and vegetables that have skin and can be peeled easily, so peppers for example are ok, but I'd rather not to deal with them because it is not an easy item to peel. Thank you.

Anything, anything you can come up with is good, but probably more on the side dish, vegetarian soups are pretty easy and plenty of recipes around for them. Thank you.

without oil and spices it's really getting into a challenge...

Okay, I reread and came up with a similar idea to my last one with some adjustments.

Pour a cup or two of wine into a sauce pan, juice your fruits, add the juice along with sugar and reduce to a thick syrup.

Take all culinary vegetables (ie., zucchini and tomatoes are botanical fruits, yet culinary vegetables) and tubers and begin to grill them, flipping them much more frequently than you would if you were able to oil the grill. Being a vegan cook, I don't really see the chicken fat as an option for oiling the grill, especially since it's been mentioned as "undesirable". If available, the vegetable can be grilled in some aluminum foil in which a few holes have been pierced to allow some smoke in. This may also help retain some of the moisture of the vegetables, which they will lose if they're out open on the grill.

As the vegetables cook, slather some of the reduced syrup onto the vegetables and allow the syrup to cook on. As the syrup cooks on, keep adding a new layer of syrup until the vegetables have cooked to the point that they are nice and tender.

The zest of any citrus fruits can be sprinkled on as a seasoning once the vegetables are done cooking.

How about some sort of eggplant roll up? If you slice whole eggplant thinly length wise and grill (no oil) the slices become sort of meaty. They seem to have oil even though there is none.

I might try something along these lines:

Slice and grill eggplant as mentioned. Whisk some eggs and cook into a thin omelet-esque sheet in a no stick pan, salt.

Next roll a slice of eggplant and a similar size piece of egg up making sure that the eggplant is on the outside layer. Place these in a baking dish and cover.

Can you use tomatoes? Make a sauce of fresh tomatoes, parsley, onion or garlic and raw carrot whirled in a blender. Use salt and white wine to season. Heat rolls in oven, heat sauce till hot but not boiled (may break) and sauce rolls just before service.

Could work...
