1 cup vegetable stock
2 16 oz cans chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp soy sauce
salt and pepper -- to taste
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp mixed herbs*

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and lightly grease a casserole dish. Heat the oil in a saucepan and saute the celery and onion until just tender.

Add the rice and TVP chunks*, and stir for a few minutes until the chunks are slightly browned. Now add the stock, tomatoes, soy sauce, salt, pepper and seasonings, if esired. Stir well and bring to a boil.

Remove the mixture from the heat and pour into the casserole dish. Bake, covered for 30 minutes. Serve immediately.
Serving Ideas : sour cream, chives

NOTES : * I used cajun spice blend but you can use whatever you want, depending on what ethnic flavors you wish. you can
also use 4 vegetable burgers broken into chunks

Linda McCartney did not put any serving amounts in any of her recipes. I made this and it seemed to me that it would feed 6 people easily.
