Beet and seitan burger

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, so I had to do something special :) 
So, I created a new burger recipe :))
This burger it's perfect as a traditional burger or wrapped in puff pastry like a mummy (just make sure that the pastry is vegan). It's really good with mustard, vegan mayo, ketchup or whatever sauce you prefer.

And I really think that the kids will love this one too because it's fun to eat a mummy any day of the year, not only on Halloween. 
And it's also pretty easy to make, because you don't have to cut anything in small pieces. Just toss everything in a food processor and press on. 
I just love to make recipes that taste like I cooked all day, but I actually need just a little time to make them :)
Let's go to the recipe now! 

500 g (2 3/4 cups) beans
250 g (2 cups) wheat gluten
200 g (2 cups) soy flour (or chickpea flour)
250 g (1.5 cups) beets, roughly diced
250 g (1 1/4 cups) carrots, roughly diced
200 g (1 1/4 cups) onions, roughly diced
100 g (1/3 cup) tomato paste
3 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sage, dry
2 tsp thyme, dry
3 tsp smoky paprika
1 tsp basil, dry
1 tsp coriander, ground
1 tsp black pepper
You may need to add some water or vegetable broth if the mixture it too crumbly

Toss all your vegetables into a food processor and pulse until everything is finely shredded. Add the beans and pulse a few more times until your beans are roughly ground (not too much, because you still want to have some texture in the burger)
Put the mixture from the food processor into a big bowl and add the rest of the ingredients (flours, spices, tomato paste) and mix until everything is well combined and you have a firm dough. Knead that for 2-3 minutes, then form burgers, about 8-10 cm (3-4 inches) in diameter and 1-1.5 cm (1/3 – ½ inch) thick.
You can bake them on a low heat for about 20-30 minutes (depends a lot of your oven, mine is not very good), or grill/ fry them on a low heat for 8-10 minutes on every side

For the mummy burgers you should give your burgers an elongated shape. Bake them and let them cool for 10-20 minutes (or until it's cool enough to maneuver)
Then you should take some puff pastry, roll it until it's about 3 mm thick, then cut it into strips and wrap your "mummy". Bake them for about 15 minutes or until golden-brown and flaky on medium heat.
Enjoy with the sauce of your choice!

Also, I have a video for these mummies!
