2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the vegetables

Heat the oven to 400°F.
  • Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [1½ cups].
  • Scrub or peel the turnips; cut the turnips into ½-inch pieces.
  • Rinse the kidney beans.


Cook the chili

In a medium [large] sauce pot over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the turnips and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and chili spice blend and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Add the beans, tomatoes, pumpkin puree, and 1 cup [2 cups] water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chili is thickened slightly and the vegetables are tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the chili cooks, prepare the ciabatta croutons.


Make the ciabatta croutons

  • Tear the ciabatta into 1-inch pieces.
On a sheet pan, drizzle the ciabatta with 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil, season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat. Spread the ciabatta in an even layer and toast in the oven until crisp and browned, 8 to 10 minutes.
While the ciabatta croutons toast, prepare the cilantro and red pepper–cashew crema.


Prep the remaining garnishes

  • Coarsely chop the cilantro for garnish.
In a small bowl, stir together the red pepper–cashew crema and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] water; season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the chili to individual bowls. Garnish with the ciabatta croutons, red pepper–cashew crema, and cilantro and serve.
