We aren't vegetarians or vegans but we're looking to expand our palates by eating healthier. This was very delicious and was a healthier bow to the typical Thanksgiving main course. Hints & suggestions - Puff pastry at my local market comes frozen. Plan ahead - place it in the fridge 24 hrs. before you need it (I did not try the "quick thaw" method so I cannot tell you if this dries it out. It was just more convenient for me to put in the fridge 24 hrs. before I needed it). I'd also suggest using only 1, maybe 1 1/2 loaves at the most of the multi-grain bread and at least 1 more 16 oz pkg. of seitan. For our taste, it was simply too much stuffing and not enough seitan. Plan ahead and use your food processor - place the bread in the processor and lay out on a jelly roll pan overnight. Then, place it in a storage bag until you're ready for it. I omitted the margarine and put the carrots, celery, onion, and parsley together in the processor, then dumped it in an XL (read: very large) bowl with the bread and omitted cooking the veggies entirely. Also, for the egg replacer, 5 1/2 tsp. is *almost* 2 Tbsp (1.8 Tbsp. to be exact). I purchased 2 dried vegan gravy mixes at my local natural foods store (I could not find garbanzo bean gravy mix); next time, I'll make sure I'll have 4 envelopes, agreeing with a previous reviewer that gravy is the key. Serve with a big bowl veggies and it's a wonderfully healthy and complete meal.
