    1      cup           TVP® chunks

   20      oz.           pineapple chunks,canned in juice
      1/4  cup           sugar
      1/4  cup           cider vinegar

 Combine first three. Cover tightly and microwave on medium high power for 10
 minutes or add  1/2 cup water and simmer in a covered pan until tender, but not
 mushy.  (20-30 min.)
 
  Bring 1 cup water to a boil and add carrots and green pepper.
 
  Cover, return to boil and cook for 2 min. to crisp-tender.  Remove from
  heat, drain, reserving liquid.  Return liquid to pan and add juice from
 pineapple.  Bring the liquid to a boil, adding sugar and vinegar.
 
  In a small bowl, combine rest.
 
  Stir the cornstarch mixture into the hot liquid; the sauce will thicken
  and come to a boil almost at once.  Add the cooked TVP®, the carrots &
  green peppers & pineapple to the sauce.  Serve on rice or crisp chow
  mein noodles.  This can be made ahead and reheated later and then served
  on rice or noodles.
