For the innards: Cook brown rice. Reconstitute TVP. Saute onion and garlic. Add tomatoes and chopped pepper tops for a minute. Mix it all together.

And also delicious... Sweet Potato/Carrot/Tempeh Stew

You'll need:
A big onion -- Peeled and chopped
A few cloves of garlic -- Peeled and chopped
Carrots (A bag) -- Peeled and sliced
Sweet Potatoes (A bag) -- Peeled and cubed
Tempeh (2 packs) -- Cut into cubes
Vegetable broth
Salt, pepper, red pepper, basil, oregano & whatever else you want

And then:
In a big pot, saute the onion and garlic in oil. When they're close to done, add the spices. Then add vegetable broth and/or water (I used something like half and half; whatever to make it enough liquid covering everything), and sweet potatoes and carrots. Bring it to a boil and let it simmer (I covered it but I don't know what difference that makes) for 10ish minutes. Then add the tempeh and let it simmer for 10ish more. Once the shit's all soft, it's ready.
