Viva Vegan!'s Sweet and Spicy Seitan-Potato Empanadas

I hate to do this, but I am talking about a cookbook recipe and not a recipe I can actually give you a link to... But here is Viva Vegan! on Amazon if you want to buy it. These Empanadas were A LOT of work, definitely something to do on the weekend so you will have leftovers to snack on throughout the week. The Red Seitan used in this recipe is to-die-for! This will most definitely be my new go-to seitan recipe! I like that most of the recipes in this cookbook don't have too many crazy ingredients and most recipes seem totally doable, unlike some of the cookbooks I have. So, enough with the blabbing, here are the pictures!

Red Seitan (The recipe for Red Seitan produces 4 of these little loaves):


Empanada Filling (Potatoes, raisins, green olives, peas, carrots, onions, and Red Seitan in a delicious gravy sauce):


Baked Empanadas:


Inside the cooked Empanadas:


The only problem I had with my first attempt at empanada making was that I must have not rolled the dough thin enough because I didn't get 10 empanadas worth of dough and I had like half of the filling left... More empanada making this weekend!
