Like all meals, your meal ought to have a base of protein and veg. Some kind of lean protein, whether that is meat, fish, Quorn, etc. and a combination of, at least two different kinds of veg or fruit. You can bulk meals out with fibrous veg like leafy greens, green beans, courgette, mushrooms, etc. They can be very filling without a big calorie cost and add extra beneficial fibre.
Carb sources should, ideally be wholegrains like rice, pasta, couscous. Root-veg like swede, squashes, potatoes or sweet potatoes. Or pulses like chickpeas, beans or lentils. These foods are high in fibre and micronutrients like certain vitamins and minerals. The more nutrient dense the food, the more satiating it is.
Experiment with flavours and recipes, discover new foods, new meals and new cooking methods and then keep the ones you enjoy. In reality, most people cook the same few meals regularly, and there is nothing wrong with that, but adding variety keeps the diet more interesting and ensures a greater variety of micronutrients.
