Myrtle Allen's Brown Bread from the James Beard cookbook Beard on Bread

So I have a tried and true 100% whole wheat bread that I've been making weekly for a few months now, which I love. Scratch that. This bread is about twelve hundred and ninety five times easier to make, and equally more delicious. It also only makes one loaf, which is nice in my opinion because then it doesn't go stale at all, and it's so easy to make, who minds making it more frequently? Heh, not me anyhow.

It requires no kneading, and only one short rising. You don't believe me do you? Well, I didn't believe James Beard, but then I made it. I added the agave, just replacing some of the water.

Kosher L'Pesach ideas?

I'm looking for help coming up with filling and enjoyable recipes which will abide by the kashrut rules for passover without being boring.

For those who don't know- prohibited foods include the following:
leavened bread, cakes, biscuits, crackers, cereal, coffee with cereal derivatives in them, wheat, barley, oats, spelt, rye, and all liquids containing ingredients or flavors made from grain alcohol.

Also forbidden for the traditions I follow are:
rice, corn, millet, legumes, buckwheat, anise, caraway, chickpeas, coriander, cumin, dextrose, fennel, flax, hemp, kasha, lecithin, lentils, peanuts, sesame, soy.

This also means that any derivitives of the above are not permitted.

Obviously, this is very limiting. I'm out pretty much all forms of milk, and pretty much all my sources of protein. Help! I'd love to do something other than matzoh lasagne and salads.
