Mm! Mmm! May! 10 Awesomeness Recipes for May

Do you love May? I love May. We all love May at Oubly. Everything about May is just great – the colors, the air, the settling in of a season where the positives of Spring and Summer coalesce and compound. If you can’t be outside (even if it’s raining, I love the rain) the next best thing is to be inside cooking. But with all the goodness and great ingredients available in May, what should we cook?! The mind is staggered by the possibilities, but luckily, there are so many cool blogger chef cats out there nowaday that we have a really nice source of recipes – greatly easing our nerves, and gently delivering inner peace. Here are the 10 recipes for May that we at Oubly have cooked and really enjoyed so far:

*Oh snap! but first I must, just must, note that anything with avocados is a-ok to make in May.

Do the Avocado Shake
Do the avocado shake! Right now! RIGHT NOW!

*cough cough* Sorry, I’m passionate about avocados, now here’s the recipes! For real this time:

1. EGGS AND AVOCADO ON TOAST

Speaking of avocados… I know, I’m shameless, but I can’t help it – our first recipe combines the best meal (breakfast!) with avocados, giving us a great start to a wonderful May day. It’s jam packed with goodness nutrients and tastes like everything I love put together, the author calls it, “Sunshine Toast” because of how healthy and great this recipe is. I don’t disagree. You’ll want to check out the original recipe post just because of the great blog design, too! Mmm!

2. LIGHT TUNA SALAD IN SOCCA WRAPS

The force is strong in this dish. The brilliant chef behind this beast says,”Prepare to be amazed beyond all expectations” and that is a titanic understatement. All I can really say about this one is MAKE IT NOW AND NOM NOM. Oh! This is also our first experience with socca bread, and oh my gosh, if you haven’t had it yet I totally demand that you try it as soon as possible. Also be sure to check out the Jedi-cook behind this one.

3. SOCCA, A NATURALLY GLUTEN-FREE CHICKPEA FLATBREAD

I was so touched by the last recipe I had to learn what’s up with and how to make socca bread. It’s so freshness and undemanding I was really excited to find this recipe. Try it. It’s real good, real real good.

Wha? Wha? The power of edamame, soy, paprika (smoked at that) and garlic all at once?! Yes, it’s true – and now you have the blueprints to craft this visual and sensual marvel thanks to the great minds at thekitchn.com – thanks guys! xoxo

5. PERSIAN STUFFED CABBAGE LEAVES

I love, love, love Persian food – and this one really takes the baby cakes. We always make it in May here at Oubly because… hmm, I don’t know, I guess there isn’t a definite reason – it’s just great and perfectly compliments the greatness of the most magical month. Show your affection and make it for loved ones, and be sure to check out turmericsaffron.blogspot.com for a great blog design and other amazing Persian dishes.

This one takes a while, but it pays back your with time with huge, massive and succulent interest. Jalapeño’s are one of my favorite (I love love love spice) and the soft deliciousness of lamb punched with the freshness of mint make this dish impossible to resist. Perfect for any day – yes, even Monday – in May.

7. KIMCHI FRIED RICE

Splendidly simple, this delicious fried rice is easy to make and, well, just great! Very few ingredients are needed and those that are, are super easy to get. It doesn’t take long either, an all around amazing meal. The blog I found this on is interesting as well, simple dieting with asian cuisine, check them out at asianskinny for more sweetage recipes.

8. STEAMED FISH WITH LIME, GARLIC AND CHILIES

Another simple, yet super delish dish – healthy and tasty enough to satisfy even the most seafood-hostile client. There’s just one catch, the fish needs to be a totally fresh catch (see what I did there? Great, huh?) which can sometimes be difficult to obtain. But if you do, oh boy, you’re in for a truly life changing experience.

9. KOREAN ROLLED OMELETTE WITH DRIED SEAWEED

Salt and pepper! Pinot Grigio and fish! Pizza and beer! Everything has a soulmate, and that’s certainly true for eggs and seaweed. Try this awesome, healthy and refreshing interpretation of an omelette that also happens to be cute.

10. Crunchy Herb Fried Chicken

Last but not least, a slightly different take on fried chicken – and it’s almost healthy, too! Not only does it taste great and has great color and crunch, it’s another simple execution. Gosh I love these food blogs, it’s very challenging for me to write about these without ravishing the refrigerator. If you wanna’ get hungry too, check out the PBS food blog for yourself, it’s a wonderfully seductive for your appetite.

We here at Oubly hope that these recipes not only bring fun and creativity to your culinary life, but also inspire you to innovate and explore possibilities that you perhaps haven’t thought of before. It’d be so jazz of you to let me know if you make any of these recipes and how it turns out in the comments. Til’ next!
