In a large saucepan or stockpot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the potatoes and sauté for approximately 10 minutes. Add the carrots, celery, tomato paste, chicken stock and bay leaves. Simmer for 40 minutes. Season with black pepper to taste. Stir in the long-grain rice and cook for 15 minutes more, until the rice is tender. Remove the bay leaves and skim off any foam.
