Hello, all my beautiful star babies! It's a whole new month, which means you have a big, blank slate in which to plan great meals. May is a very exciting time to eat across the country. We're shaking off winter (finally) and getting into some fun produce. Depending on where you live, expect to see asparagus, radishes, rhubarb, early strawberries, and some leafy greens at your farmers market.
We've looked to the stars and figured out exactly what you should be eating based on your zodiac sign in May. So go ahead and put these recipes on your weekly meal rotation for the next 31 days.
Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)
As a creative intellectual, you crave recipes that have an "aha" moment. You also want something you can tinker around with a little bit. Basically, you're hard to please! But this recipe for honey harissa chicken and chickpeas is sure to be a favorite this month. The unique combination of honey and harissa will make dinner memorable.
Pisces (February 19 to March 20)
You're deeply intuitive and spiritual, and you desire recipes that are a little more dreamy. You're willing to put in a little extra work for something that feels right. That's why this recipe for cornmeal ricotta cake needs to happen in May. It tastes and feels almost like cheesecake! It's the perfect thing to serve outside on the first warm days.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)
As a born leader, you love bold recipes that you might not have seen before. You like trying new things out in the kitchen. That's why this asparagus tart is the perfect thing to make in May. There's asparagus (duh!) and also ham and melty Gruyère cheese.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
You like feeling comfortable, and you also love recipes that feel a little indulgent. That's why this healthy veggie macaroni and cheese hits the spot. You get the most comforting of dishes (mac and cheese) with some green things (for spring!).
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)
Since you're indecisive, you need a recipe that explores both of your sides. You need something social and shareable, but also practical. That's why we see these strawberry-rhubarb bars in your future, dear Gemini. They're the perfect thing to pass around at work, as they're definitely more practical than bringing a pie into the office.
Cancer (June 20 to July 21)
You're all about tradition. You're a total homebody and love recipes that feel comfy. That's why this tater tot breakfast casserole with lots of veggies is perfect for you. What's more comforting that biting into the crispy shell of a potato-filled tater tot? Nothing, I say.
Leo (July 22 to August 22)
You're enthusiastic and energetic, and you love recipes that bring a little oomph to the table — something magnetic and charming, just like you. This kimchi and radish salad is the best match. It's crunchy and spicy and funky, and obviously full of vegetables.
Virgo (August 23rd to September 22)
You're a total perfectionist, so cooking can be a challenge. You're so detail-oriented that you sometimes forget to shake things up and have fun. That's why this recipe for Vietnamese-style chicken and noodle salad is perfect. It's a lot of fun, but requires a bit of patience with all the herbs.
Libra (September 23 to October 22)
You're a team player, and you like bringing other people into the kitchen. That's why these fish tacos with rhubarb salsa are the perfect thing to make for May. They're tacos, so they're easily customizable (ahem, teamwork!), and there's rhubarb in there so you're hitting that seasonal moment too.
Scorpio (October 23 to November 21)
You're curious and passionate, and you love recipes that don't let you down. You're looking for a meal that you can depend on, and that's why this lemon braised chicken and beans situation is a great dish. There aren't a ton of ingredients to consider, and you just need a big pot to cook with. There's also this great mint pesto thing that completes the dish.
Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)
You're always learning, you're extroverted, and you love talking to people who make you question what you believe in. This slow cooker spinach and artichoke chicken will keep you on your toes this month. There's no cheese in this recipe (shock!), but you'll get a lot of depth of flavor with the lemon broth.
Capricorn (December 22 to January 19)
You're goal-driven and love easy recipes that get dinner on the table quickly. Sure, you like a challenge once in a while, but deep down you're practical. That's why this veggie-packed pasta casserole is an excellent option for May. It's a hearty dish that the whole family will enjoy, but it's still bright and tangy with lots of pesto, shallots, and greens.
