Introducing the new LEON winter menu: This year LEON are keeping it real. Rather than blending avocado and chocolate and calling it dessert, or telling themselves (and you) that blitzed cauliflower can masquerade as a pizza base, they’re just serving vegetables in ways that make them taste really good. Because vegetables taste really good anyway and LEON are heralding them just the way they are. They don’t need a New Year’s resolution to become more like a pudding, or transform themselves into a grain or a base or a cake. They just need to be prepared well, and treated in a way that brings out their best. As do we all, really.
That’s why, this year, LEON have an abundance of the best seasonal produce and are serving it to you straight up, without fuss. It’s the time of year to be celebrating British beetroot, butternut squash and dark, leafy greens like kale, and that’s just what LEON intend to do.
They have three new vegan options on the menu to show off the best of the season’s produce, including two new salads that taste like everything you want to eat right now: a Rainbow Mezze Salad and a Squash, Sage and Kale Salad. When you’re not dreaming of salad, there’s a Roasted Beet & Squash Wrap that’s full of good stuff, with brightly pickled red onions and a fiery vegan horseradish mayo. And for vegetarians, the return of the Sweet Potato Falafel Hot Box has arrived just in time for the New Year.
