Even before the coronavirus pandemic, global cooking trends were showing an uptick in people cooking at home.

Gallup and Cookpad’s latest report published Dec. 17, 2020, showed that through 2019, a growing number of people around the world were cooking at home rather than going out or eating pre-cooked meals.

In the U.S., the swelling popularity of at-home meal prep subscriptions from Blue Apron to Hello Fresh! and the growing prevalence of grocery delivery underscore a renewed interest in prepping meals at home.

Then as COVID-19 spread, mandatory restaurant shutdowns and capacity limits drove a dramatic jump in home cooking—not to mention demand for recipes and sales of things like yeast and kitchen appliances.

Of all meals, dinner is perhaps the one most likely to feel boring after too much repetition. And after a year of dining at home, the dinnertime rut is real for many of us.

To help diversify things, Stacker compiled a list of 50 dinner recipes from Allrecipes. Many of these dishes require just a few pantry staples and fresh produce. Keep reading to discover some new recipes to mix up your nightly routine.
