  • Drain the Seitan. Process in the food processor until it crumbles.
  • Add the pumpkin seeds to the Seitan and process again until they are well combined.

  • Add the bread crumbs, parsley, cumin, coriander, cayenne, ground flax seed, garlic, salt, tamari and the olive oil, tamari, water, lime juice and salt.
  • Mix the above ingredients until well combined. I used my little hand mixer which made the mixing go faster. I did this for a few minutes to activate the ground flax and water to create a binder.
  • Put into the fridge to let the flavors set up. An hour should be enough.
  • Once that is done, preheat your oven to 425'F.

  • Using wet hands shape into balls. Then flatten the patties a little.
  • Place on the baking sheet with a little space between each pattie Spray top of each pattie with oil.
