From the Test Kitchen

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.
