To one cup of textured vegetable protein add two cups of water.
Let soak twenty minutes
Squeeze out excess water and set aside.
Cook the veggies
To a pan on medium heat add one tablespoon of olive oil. Add the onion and cook until the onion has softened (about two minutes). Add the fresh garlic, tomato paste and a small pinch of salt. While stirring often cook on medium heat for about 10 minutes or until the tomato paste has slightly darkened.
After the tomato paste has changed color add the rest of your veggies. Add another pinch of salt. While continuing to stir cook your veggies for about 5 minutes or so.
Finish the sauce
After the veggies have cooked add the can of tomatoes, rehydrated TVP, veggie stock and seasoning. While occasionally stirring cook on medium to low heat for about fifteen minutes.
Check and adjust seasoning. Cook for an additional five minutes.
