Opinion Vegan-friendly meal delivery services in Australia

Author: Jacqueline Published: May 8, 2024

Want a delicious and nutritious vegan meal but don’t have the time or energy to cook? Then let these meal delivery services lighten the load!

I love cooking. I really do. But not on weeknights after a long day at work, and not when I have time restraints. And y’know, sometimes, I just have plans. So really, this should make me the poster girl for meal delivery services!

Allow me to talk you through the best options for fresh, ready to heat-and-eat meals, delivered practically straight to your mouth. Eating varied, plant-based, health-conscious meals could not be easier!

Soulara

This 100% plant-based meal-delivery service has 50+ meals to select from, allowing you to choose as much variety as you wish. I recommend trying one of everything before settling on your faves. A healthy diet includes all the colours of the rainbow, so be sure to keep things bright.

And for those who may have previously used the services of the sadly now-defunct HerbiDoor, you’ll be pleased to hear that the team behind Herbi’s favourite meals have handed over some of their most treasured recipes to Soulara, so you’ll still be able to get your fix.

Soulara deliver nation-wide. Visit their website here.

Eat Iku

From humble beginnings as a small eatery in Glebe to a popular online vegan meal delivery service, Eat Iku have honed their most popular dishes over the last 35 years and are now bringing them straight to your door.

Their menu covers everything you could possibly need: breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, snacks, salads, soups, and even cold-pressed juices. There is also an expertly curated menu of accompaniments to choose from, if you’re so inclined; fermented veg, jams, relishes, and dressings all allow for some extra zhuzhing at meal times.

Eat Iku deliver to NSW, VIC, ACT, & QLD. You can visit their retail eatery at Martin Place Foodcourt in Sydney. Check out their website here.

Garden of Vegan

All vegan, all organic, and naturally free from oil, gluten, and refined sugars. Garden of Vegan have a focus on providing fresh and healthy meals that are big on flavour for everyone to enjoy.

As with Eat Iku, Garden of Vegan cater well for all mealtimes while also boasting a specialised gourmet section for those nights that you want some fancy, high-class cuisine without any fuss.

On the off chance you do feel like cooking, they also sell produce boxes and wholefood pantry staples. But hey, don’t force yourself – they’ve made drool-worthy ready meals so you don’t have to. It’d almost be rude to cook 😉

Vegan Soul

Formerly operating as Vegan Lebanese Street Food in Bondi, these lovely folks restructured their business in late 2023 to allow Vegan Soul to bring their much-loved food to even more people. While keeping the Lebanese classics like falafel, babaganoush, loubieh, and shawarma, they’ve diversified their menu to include a wider range of cuisines now too.

For those who enjoy plant-based meats, there are a decent range of ‘chicken’ and ‘beef’ options available in curries, stews and wraps to try out, as well as plenty of wholefood options.

Vegan Soul deliver to Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Visit their website here.

Thai-born Pamela is the brains behind this pan-Asian plant-based meal delivery service. With meals made fresh and snap-frozen, Pam Pam currently offers almost 40 dishes, with flavours from Thailand, Korea, China, Malaysia, Japan and more.

There’s a range of wholefood and plant-based meat options available to suit everyone’s needs, plus great deals on meal bundles to help make your dinners as affordable as they are delicious.

If you love Asian cuisines but don’t necessarily want to eat from this region for every meal, I’d recommend at least popping in a Pam Pam order every now and then to keep your freezer stocked. You’ll be glad you did.

Pam Pam deliver to NSW, VIC, and QLD. You can visit their website here.

Wholistically Healthy

This Perth-based meal delivery service is not completely vegetarian but they have enough vegan options that it’s worth giving them a shot. As the name would suggest, there is a strong focus on health, with ayurvedic philosophies at the core of the business. This is a great find for the West Coast!

Wholistically Healthy deliver to Perth Metro. You can visit their website here.

Vege2Go

With less of a focus on healthy eating, and more focus on the comforting flavours of Italian fare, Vege2Go are another that aren’t entirely vegan, but have a drool-worthy selection of options.

Notably, it’s the first service I’ve found to have a vegan codfish option, which deserves some big props from the seafood-lover-turned-veg folks out there. You can pick up some specialty retail items for delivery too, such as jelly, dessert pudding, and dairy-free ricotta.

Plus, for those following a low-FODMAP diet, many of the offerings are labelled suitable, so a double-win for those with additional dietary requirements!

Vege2Go deliver to Melbourne and Sydney, metro and regional. You can visit their website here.

Just Add Vegan

This Sydney-centric service offers weekly ready-to-eat meals, meal kits, and some sweet treats. With a regularly rotating menu, you can try different heat-and-eat meals from their menu every week. You might come for the mushroom stroganoff, but trust me, you’ll stay for the lentil moussaka.

Alternatively, you can grab their meal kits if recipe inspo is the only thing holding you back from cooking.

Just Add Vegan deliver within Sydney. Visit their website here.

But I want to cook…!

If you just want the week’s ingredients delivered straight to you in order to save you some time or save you the mental load of planning your week’s meals, there are plenty of meal kit services available.

Eat Earthly and VegMeUp are just two that are entirely plant-based, meaning you don’t even have to double check ingredient lists – the menu is essentially your oyster (mushroom)!

Eat Earthly deliver meal kits to metro Melbourne.
VegMeUp deliver meal kits to Melbourne, Greater Geelong, and Sydney.

As with any list, this is by no means exhaustive. Some of the bigger meal delivery services do cater to vegan diets but have too small a range to earn a spot on this list. Others simply don’t cater at all, but if you come across one of these who you would’ve liked to order from because they’re conveniently located in your area, it can’t hurt to put in a kind request that they consider adding some vegan offerings to their menu!
