If your mind is as twisted as SFoodie's is, Fairfax's Seitan Family sounds slightly sinister -- at least until you remind yourself that there's nothing devilish about the wheat gluten product from which it takes its name. Anyway, these
Seitanists produce a line of vegan empanadas worth tracking down, including seasonal specials like the kabocha squash and greens variety. The slightly sweet fall squash tastes like a cross between pumpkin and yam and gives these wheat flour dough triangles a slightly sweet finish. Find 'em at Other Avenues
(2920 Judah at 44th Ave.) and Rainbow Grocery
(1745 Folsom at 13th St.).
