Our Favourite Low-Calorie Vegan Meals

by Fabian Jackson

5min read

Have you been looking for the tastiest plant-based dinners that are rich in nutrients but also low in calories? You’ve come to the right place – and what’s better is that they’re all frozen and ready to cook through in the oven or microwave.

You’ve been asking for lighter dishes from allplants, so here are everyone’s favourite dinners, but all under 450kcal per portion.

They also contain less than 50g carbs per serving, are low in saturated fats, and are perfectly balanced, all with happy, healthy eating in mind.

The best low-calorie vegan meals

Teriyaki Udon

A lot of our customers know this as our hero dish. It’s a spicy, sticky teriyaki sauce with soft udon noodles, sesame mushrooms, mixed fresh vegetables and a sprinkling of toasted cashews. At just 420kcal, two of your 5 a day and packed with plant protein. 

Butternut Squash and Pearl Barley Risotto 


Who doesn’t love a warming bowl of risotto? This warming and rich pearl barley and squash dish is topped with toasted hazelnuts and only 365kcal.

Roasted Vegetable lasagne


We can’t get enough of lasagne, but too often they can be too high in calories, which is more than okay as an occasional treat, but this is a version you could eat every day if you’re so inclined. It’s 360kcal, high in iron, vitamin C and is a good source of protein.

Protein Bolognese Bowl


This family-favourite was a community request and we’re thrilled that you asked for it. It’s not only loaded with plant protein (as the name suggests) but only 280kcal per serving, and trust us when we say it’s filling too.

Cauli Tikka Masala

Talk about the fakeaway experience – this Tikka roasted cauliflower with its creamy masala sauce is topped with curly kale, chickpeas and peas, and toasted almonds. It’s one of our new favourite dishes and only 391kcal.

Aubergine Parmigiana

If you like to pretend you’re on holiday at dinner time then this is the dish for you. It’s high in vitamin C, low in sugar, packed with flavour and just 351kcal. Plus, it’s the best vegan mozzarella we’ve ever tasted.

Spicy Szechuan Noodles


We know we’ve said a few of these have been our favorites, but this one might actually just cinch it. It’s brown rice noodles, a rich and fiery tahini sauce, topped with a soya and mushroom mince, steamed pak choi, edamame and salted peanuts. Oh, and it’s only 449kcal per portion.
