A new year means new opportunities to try recipes that could change your whole perspective on food. Although, sometimes deciding what recipe to try next is difficult. Here are the recipes that you should try in the new year, based on your zodiac sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

You like things efficient, Aries, so that you can quickly move from task-to-task. You have places to be and things to do, so you can't waste time with cumbersome recipes or with meals that are heavy and slow you down. This fajita bowl checks all those boxes: quick, easy, hearty, and tasty! You can also make it just how you like it: with steak, chicken, shrimp, or any other protein.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

As a person who appreciates practicality and quality, you don't mind taking the time to do something as long as it comes out exactly how you want. Also, as a more sensual sign, you love indulgent things. That is why you need to try this slow-cooker brownie pudding this year. It is rich and chocolate-y, and, although it takes a long time to cook, it will be so worth it in the end!

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Your adaptability and open mind make it easy for you to try new things. So why not try this babaganoush? This is an eggplant dip that you can make in a classic way, or get creative and add your own flavors and spices to it.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

As a Cancer, you value loyalty and time spent with friends and family. When you cook, you want to make sure that everyone feels welcomed by the food. Baked ziti is an easy meal that is always a crowd-pleaser. Plus, this recipe feeds 12, so invite everyone you know!

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

steak, meat, beef
Clara Park

You are a natural-born leader as the king of the jungle. You also fancy the finer things in life, like nice meats and fine wine, but you don't have to make filet minon to be fancy. This new year, try this perfectly grilled steak recipe to impress your friends and satisfy your boujee inner lion!

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

paella, chicken, rice
Marina Nazario

Virgo, you are patient and methodical. Your detail-oriented and organized nature make it easy for you to follow long, complicated recipes easily. Paella can be very complicated with its long list of ingredients and prep work. However, this dish is so delicious that it is worth your patience in the end.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

As a Libra, you love partnerships and symmetry. You would never imagine having chips without dip or meat without potatoes. Chicken piccata would be nothing if the chicken did not have its lemon-caper sauce partner! That is why this dish would be perfect for you, served with garlic-y spinach and rice accompaniments.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

You are resourceful and passionate, Scorpio, so you put your all into everything you do. Soups and stews are really the kind of foods where you can taste the love and attention that you put into them. Jambalaya in particular is a dish that you can really taste the time it took, so try it out when you have a day to yourself.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

soup, pho, broth, beef, chicken, noodle, meat
Jennifer Cao

You are curious and value your freedom. You also love to travel and try new things without being restrained by rules, so you should try this pho recipe. This Vietnamese noodle soup is sure to satisfy the travel bug in you... at least for one meal!

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Disciplined and responsible, you excel at tasks that emphasize strict adhesion to the rules. You are also very traditional. That's why Angel food cake is perfect for you! Cake is familiar and delicious, but with Angel food cake, you must follow the directions very carefully for the ideal result.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

chili, chorizo, spaghetti
Chelsea Hawk

As an Aquarius, you tend to be more intellectual and progressive than the other signs. You support causes that you are passionate about. You also tend to care about animals and the environment, so Meatless Monday is not totally off your radar. Try this spaghetti squash with chunky tomato sauce this new year to feel full and satisfied, but without the heavy meat!

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

parsley, salsa, vegetable, chili, bread, cream, garlic, tomato, soup
Dina Cheney

You are intuitive and empathetic, but you also enjoy being alone. That is why these 5-minute nachos in a mug are perfect for just you! Put one together, heat it up, and curl up on the couch with a movie to enjoy your alone time.
