Plant-based meals? At least on a Monday. And roasties? Always!

If you buy one plant-based recipe book this year, make it Natural Flava. For one exceptionally delicious reason. Brothers Craig and Shaun McAnuff’s recipe for rum-roasted potatoes. Have you ever! They’re crunchy on the outside, melt-in-the-mouth creamy soft on the inside, and subtly flavoured with garlic, rosemary and spiced rum. Heaven. Not the only delicious recipe in this book which is full of quick, easy, plant-based Caribbean dishes … crunchy corn fritters, Caribbean green seasoning curry, sticky ginger cake … all packed with flava.

Birthday gatherings and garden parties, barbecues and dinners at home, Celebrate – Plant-Based Recipes For Every Occasion serves up exactly what it promises. Bettina Campolucci-Bordi’s collection of recipes ranges from lovely herbed crostinis with a leek and tahini dip to serve at a drinks party to chargrilled veggies with a Caesar dressing to wow guests at your next braai. There’s creamy layered trifle in a jar for a picnic, and smashed Brussels sprouts and garlic mayo which she has in her Christmas chapter but which are far too good to keep for a once-a-year offering. And we won’t be waiting until Halloween to make the creamy sweet potato and leek bake. Yum! Hardie Grant Books, R415
