1/3 cup Oil
3 medium Onions, chopped
2 Stalks celery, chopped
4 Cloves garlic minced
1 medium Bell pepper, chopped
1 medium Jalapeno pepper, minced
2 pound Tofu chunks
2 tablespoons ground red chilis
2 tablespoons cumin
2 tablespoons oregano
1 whole Bay leaf
2 cup Water
56 ounces tomatos
6 ounce tomato paste
2 can Kidney beans
1 teaspoon -salt to taste

Preparation / Directions:

Saute first five ingredients in oil until limp. Add tofu and saute until browned. Mix the spices together in a bowl and sprinkle into the pot. Mix thoroughly. Add water, tomatoes and tomato paste. Stir. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 2 hours, stirring occasionally. If desired, at this point, add the kidney beans. Taste and correct seasoning. The addition of 1 tsp to 1 tblsp of cayenne pepper can make this gradually more spicy. As the recipe reads, itUs fairly tame. NOTE: The ground chilis are NOT chili powder. Most chili powder is made up of a combination of chilis, oregano, cumin, salt and garlic. If chili powder is all you can find, then you will have to readjust the cumin and oregano amounts.
