For tonight’s Jamaican-inspired dinner, we’re making a vegetarian chili layered with warm curry spices. With purple top turnip, sweet potato and collard greens, each hearty bowl is brimming with incredible flavor. We’re garnishing the chili with crunchy, pan-toasted pita croutons­­—a perfect contrast to the delightfully buttery consistency of the chickpeas in the broth.

1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the pita. Peel and small dice the onion. Small dice the sweet potato. Peel and small dice the turnip. Remove and discard the collard green stems; roughly chop the leaves. Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Pick the parsley leaves off the stems; discard the stems. To make the slurry, in a bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and ¼ cup of water.

2 Make the croutons:

In a large, high-sided pan (or pot), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the pita; season with salt and pepper. Toast, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned and crispy. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate; immediately season with salt and pepper. Wipe out the pan.

Reduce the heat to medium-high and simmer, stirring occasionally, 14 to 16 minutes, or until thickened and the sweet potato is tender.
