Imagine yams that taste like crawfish, lotus roots that pass for barbecued ribs and soy and seitan with the zest of smothered Southern chicken.

Seasoned Vegan will offer meatless and nondairy food with no gluten or animal fat. They plan to apply for kosher certification as well.

“One of our goals quite simply is to increase longevity and improve the health of the neighborhood we love,” says Brenda Beener, 57, the chef, founder and co-owner.
