Seitan Roast with Chestnut and Cranberry Stuffing

recipe from vegan planet!

1/2 cup tamari or other soy sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup minced onion
1/2 cup minced celery
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried sage
2 tablespoons brandy
6 cups cubed stale bread
8 ounces cooked chestnuts
1/3 cup dried (sweetened) cranberries
1/2 cup minced parsley leaves
1 cup water
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
one 1-pound piece raw seitan

1.)in a plastic bag, marinate the seitan and soy sauce for 1 hour or overnight, turning it over several times.
2.)heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. add the onions and celery, cover, and cooking until softened, about 5 minutes. add the thyme, sage, and brandy and cook for one more minute. remove from heat and set aside.
3.)place bread in a large bowl. add parsley, chestnuts, cranberries, water, salt, and pepper. stir in the onion mixture and mix well. add water if it is too dry.
4.)with a rolling pin, roll out the marinated seitan (remember, this is uncooked seitan...) to about 1/4 inch thick. spread the surface with the stuffing and roll up. place seam side down in a lightly oiled baking pan. bake (this cookbook does not give me a temperature but i would say something between 350-375 would be about right) 30-40 minutes until firm and golden brown.
