While the sauerkraut is soaking, prepare the seitan patties. In a large bowl, combine the seitan, pastry flour chickpea flour and seasoning blend. Form the mixture into 12 small patties, 1 1/2 - 2 inches (3.5 - 5 cm) in diameter.
Preheat the oven to 300F/150C. Heavily coat a medium ovenproof casserole dish with cooking oil and set it aside.
In a heavy skillet, heat the sesame oil over medium heat. Add the seitan patties and cook them until well browned (5-7 minutes on each side).
Grate the apple into a medium bowl and set aside. Reserving the soaking water, drain and firmly squeeze the sauerkraut, then combine it with the grated apple.
Place the seitan patties in the prepared casserole dish. Cover the patties with the apple sauerkraut mixture and half of the reserved soaking water
Cover and bake the patties until they are heated through (45-60 minutes). Serve hot.
