When a person makes the decision to go vegan, one might assume that a dish like brisket will pretty much disappear from their diet, but V-Eats Modern Vegan restaurant thinks that brisket is too essential to abandon. The Dallas restaurant, which opened recently, has created a meat-, dairy-, and egg-free -- in other words, completely vegan -- version of the classic smoked dish.
The vegan brisket from V-Eats Modern Vegan is made from seitan, which is also known as wheat gluten. Seitan is effectively a way to create a protein-like loaf using just the gluten in wheat. The trick to the vegan brisket is really in the marinade and smoking process, though. V-Eats Modern Vegan manages to prepare the seitan such that it stays moist and smoky, just like a hunk of brisket.
