Oats and figs are good vegan sources of calcium.

I attempt to eat two cans of dark red kidney beans (30% total RDA) and one can of spinach (30% RDA) and 15 carrots (30% total RDA) in a stew along with olive oil, onions and tomato sauce (about 12% RDA), maybe some green peppers. That's a total of 102%. On top of that I always have a fruit smoothie with enriched rice milk (not natural but at least 30% RDA, probably more like 50%). Then various soups that have another 5/10%. A nice snack is raw broccoli with hummus which ought to have pretty good calcium as tahini is very high in calcium and broccoli is always mentioned as a high calcium food.

I agree with Jay -- broccoli and raw sesame seeds (or raw tahini) are great, but no better assimilated than fresh, raw, leafy greens.
My daily staples are those highest in calcium -- bok choy, kale, and collards. These are also the highest veggies in e.f.a.s and protein (contain all the aminos for producing protein). Large amounts are best!
Also, almonds are pretty good.
Try blending broccoli into a soup with some creamy nuts for a "cream of broccoli soup"!
Or add broccoli sprouts to you salads.
