For £32, you get a box containing three different vegan classics that you’ll recognise from Leon’s dine-in menu in more normal times, and a kilo of rice to serve them all with. Each meal serves four, so at just over £2.50 a portion, it comes in substantially cheaper than you’d be paying to tuck in in the Oxford city restaurant.
The thing I was most intrigued to try was the ‘chicken’ tiki masala, made with vegan Quorn pieces. A number of local Indian restaurants have started to think about labelling vegan options on their menu, but as yet no one else is offering us something using mock meat. The dish didn’t disappoint.
Cake has been a necessity during this period of staying home, and while the local delivery choices have been slightly limited by our location on the very edge of Oxford, I’ve been enjoying the delights of nationwide delivery from vegan bakers far and wide.
