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 with its brand new Winter menu.

The LEON Winter menu launches

The healthy restaurant chain is offering three new vegan options to show off the best of the season’s produce, including two new salads – Rainbow Mezze Salad and a Squash, Sage and Kale Salad.

And for vegetarians, the return of the Sweet Potato Falafel Hot Box has arrived just in time for the New Year.

There’s also a Chilli con Carne available – a recipe from LEON co-founder, John Vincent’s Dad, Leon that uses British beef and black beans in a dark, boldly flavoured tomato sauce.
