 Fast Veggie Gumbo
 ---- ------ -----
 We made this up, and have gradually been perfecting it.
 1 16-ounce package frozen gumbo vegetables (or mix together a
 	comparable quantity of frozen okra, bell peppers, celery, 
 	and onions)
 12 ounces fat-free tomato sauce (not spaghetti sauce, as the seasoning
 	would be wrong)
 1/4 teaspoon salt (if you use salt, as we do)
 1/4 teaspoon celery seeds
 1 teaspoon ground dried ancho chiles (substitute a good chile powder)
 2 hefty squirts veggie worcestorshire sauce
 fresh ground black pepper
 1 large clove garlic, pressed or minced (we keep a bag of peeled
 	garlic cloves in the freezer, extremely convenient--we peeled
 	them ourselves, though--amazingly, a frozen clove presses 
 	quite nicely)
 1 teaspoon oregano
 Mix together all ingredients and microwave or simmer on the stovetop
 until the okra is tender: between 5 and 15 minutes. Serve over rice to 
 soak up the sauce. Serves 3-4.
