Veggie Luncheon Meat

VeganDad has a couple of great seitan recipes on his site that inspired me to try my own variation on his "Veggie Lunch Meat" -- which indeed slices well as lunch meat, but is also neutral enough to be used in other recipes too. Here's my variation:

one 14.5-ounce can white beans
2 cups water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic
1/4 teaspoon tumeric
1 teaspoon fennel seeds
1 teaspoon ground sage
1 teaspoon ground pepper
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon vegan worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
2-3/4 cups vital wheat gluten flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a blender, puree together all of the ingredients except for the vital wheat gluten flour. Place mixture in large bowl. Add the flour and mix until it comes together as a dough. Knead for one minute. Shape the dough into a log and wrap in aluminmum foil. Place the log in a 9x13 cake pan and fill the pan half-full with water. Bake in oven at 350 degrees for about 90 minutes.
