Hi and welcome to Five Weeknight Dishes. E-mails poured in after previous week’s publication, in which I requested you to notify me what you have been cooking and how you’ve been feeling about it.
Notes arrived from all above — Saudi Arabia, Australia, Sweden. That was incredible. Some of the loudest calls ended up ones you may possibly count on: You like sheet-pan recipes. There ended up requests for vegetarian recipes that use considerably less cheese and far more beans, while some folks want fewer beans and — I’m looking through concerning the traces here — far more cheese. A several audience precisely wrote in to say no a lot more chickpeas. (I do like chickpeas.)
I also obtained amazing notes about cooking for your beloveds, and for yourselves, including an beautiful letter from a reader who finished a long-phrase partnership, moved into her individual condominium and identified appreciate once more — all in the course of the pandemic! She cooked the full time. It was a source of serenity, she claimed.

I would double this soup by Samin Nosrat, stashing some of it in the freezer for later on (another preferred request). 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.
Far more than a few readers stated they have been getting nachos for supper. I aid that. This recipe by Priya and Ritu Krishna begins with cheese, black beans, tomatoes and chips, and provides cilantro chutney and tamarind sauce, frequent factors of Indian chaat. Outstanding, and delicious as well.
