Empanadas are a universal entree that can carry any filling, even sweet. For savory empanadas you can choose from multiple options, however, this filling of seitan with mushrooms is one of the richest. In addition to the main ingredients we have added other vegetables, such as onion, pepper and eggplant, hummus to add creaminess to the filling and nuts, such as raisins and nuts, to create textures and add a sweet and festive touch to the filling.
