Packed with wholefoods and ready in as little as 6 minutes, they're perfect for those midweek evenings (or lunches) when you don't have time to cook.

black bean soup

Vegan Black Bean Soup

While this vegan soup tastes delicious on its own (think creamy, tangy, sweet and smokey), it's really all about the toppings here. Crispy homemade tortilla chips, smooth avocado, tangy yoghurt and pickled onions make for a party in every spoonful. I know it might sound too good to be true, but it also only takes around thirty minutes to pull together and is extremely adaptable to whatever you have in the cupboard.

pumpkin pasta

Pumpkin Sage Pasta

This weeknight pasta is sweet, cosy, and basically comfort food at its finest. It comes together in under thirty minutes and relies mainly on pantry ingredients and pumpkin (or butternut squash) which, when crisped first and then softened with stock and wine, adds creaminess, depth of flavour and heartiness.

Quick Vegan Meals Delivered

Our chefs have done the hard work so you don't have to. Every dish is packed with plants and designed by a nutritionist so you can relax knowing you've got a quick vegan option in your freezer.

Mac + Greens

mac + greens

Macaroni tossed through our creamy, cheesy sauce with charred broccoli, fresh greens and a delicious toasted crumb. This dish feels indulgent but is low in saturated fat, high in iron and vitamin C and contains 2 of your 5-a-day. What's not to love?

Protein Power Bowl

protein power bowl

Miso roasted tofu, coconut and edamame smash, with power grains, sweet chilli broccoli, sesame cabbage, and a pea and edamame medley. Our no. 1 bestseller, this dish is a rainbow of colour and packed with 25.6g of protein per serve.

Teriyaki Udon

teriyaki udon

A spicy, sticky teriyaki sauce coats satisfyingly thick and chewy udon noodles, with sesame mushrooms, mixed fresh veg and a sprinkling of toasted cashews. Treat yourself to a Friday night fakeaway (or any night of the week for that matter).

Rigatoni Bolognese

rigatoni bolognese

A rich and hearty minced mushroom, lentil and walnut ragu, folded through rigatoni pasta and sprinkled with an almond parm crumb. An allplants classic that's loved as much by customers today as it was when we launched.

Miso + Tamari Tofu Bowl

miso + tamari tofu bowl

Japanese inspired tamari and chilli glazed tofu, with edamame and lime smash, a daikon, carrot and cabbage slaw with mirin dressing, over a bulgur wheat and quinoa grain mix. Winner of a Great Taste Award and it's easy to see why.
