Hello there and welcome to Five Weeknight Dishes. Emails poured in after final week’s publication, in which I questioned you to tell me what you’ve been cooking and how you’ve been sensation about it.
Notes arrived from all above — Saudi Arabia, Australia, Sweden. That was remarkable. Some of the loudest calls were being kinds you may possibly be expecting: You like sheet-pan recipes. There were being requests for vegetarian recipes that use less cheese and more beans, however some people today want significantly less beans and — I’m looking through amongst the lines listed here — much more cheese. A couple readers specifically wrote in to say no more chickpeas. (I do like chickpeas.)
I also gained extraordinary notes about cooking for your beloveds, and for yourselves, including an beautiful letter from a reader who finished a very long-time period romantic relationship, moved into her individual condominium and uncovered love once again — all throughout the pandemic! She cooked the whole time. It was a source of serenity, she said.

I would double this soup by Samin Nosrat, stashing some of it in the freezer for afterwards (one more common ask for). Commenters thrilled to the peanut-coconut-chile topping, a take on the Thai and Laotian snack miang kham. To make the recipe vegan, use vegan fish sauce.
More than a number of readers mentioned they ended up possessing nachos for evening meal. I support that. This recipe by Priya and Ritu Krishna starts with cheese, black beans, tomatoes and chips, and adds cilantro chutney and tamarind sauce, popular factors of Indian chaat. Good, and delicious too.
