LEON launches healthy Soups and Salads range into Sainsbury’s


Naturally Fast-Food brand LEON today announces the expansion of its Grocery range with the launch of single-serve plant-rich salads and vegan rainbow soups, created to enjoy at home.

Lunch is a big part of the LEON day, and now the brand wants to bring its Naturally Fast Food to even more people through its exclusive partnership with Sainsbury’s supermarket stores. Perfect for convenient, plant-rich, work from home meals. LEON is introducing hot and cold single-serve lunch options that are ready to eat at home. The three new meal soups and three new salads take their inspiration and flavour combinations from the LEON restaurant menu through the years.            

LEON is celebrating the power of plants with its new rainbow soups, and all three are vegan and gluten-free. These meal soups feature a variety of plants and vegetables, helping you on your way to eating 30 different plants a week. Find hearty, Autumnal flavours such as the Curried Coconut & Sweet Potato Rainbow Soup with cauliflower florets and carrots (380g @ £2.25). Roasted Tomato & Harissa – with roasted red peppers and fennel seeds, which is high in fibre (380g @ £2.25) and British Pea & Pesto – with Italian basil oil, is a source of fibre (380g @ £2.25). These convenient lunch options are all a source of fibre and two of your five a day, making them a delicious lunch option.

Of the single-serve ready to enjoy salads range, two are vegan, and one is vegetarian. Introducing the vegan LEON Kale Caesar Pasta Salad (£3.50), a homage to one of the first four salads to grace the LEON menu back in 2004 when they opened the doors of its first restaurant in Carnaby Street. LEON has swapped out the classic romaine leaves for shredded kale, Riccioli pasta, vegan parmesan shavings and have even created its very own creamy-vegan Caesar dressing to give a LEON twist to the classic Caesar Salad. All topped with tamari-roasted seeds for bite.

The LEON Black Bean rice box made its first appearance on the LEON menu in 2016, and it became such a hit that it’s stuck around ever since. The vegan Brazilian Black Bean Salad (250g £3.50) is a delicious take on the LEON restaurant staple for you to enjoy at home. It features black rice, red quinoa, black turtle beans and sweetcorn. All tossed in a smoked-aioli dressing, topped with chipotle-enrobed, skin-on roasted sweet potato chunks.     

The Greens & Grains Salad (250g @ £3.50),another LEON classic dish that die-hard LEON fans will instantly recognise from the 2004 restaurant launch menus and named ‘The Original Superfood Salad’. Bright broccoli florets, sweet garden peas, cucumber slices & edamame beans are topped with pumpkin seeds, and whole feta cubes – finished with a sweet and tangy LEON vinaigrette.

Just because you are working from home, you don’t need to miss out on LEON’s Naturally Fast Food. Make lunchtime your favourite meal of the day again with LEON’s new meal soups and salads.
