Test Kitchen Tips

Adding the rainbow chard off heat allows the residual heat to wilt the greens, while the stems will retain a little crunch.

When making this soup, be sure not to overcook the beans — mushy beans are not ideal here.


Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium.

Add onion and cook until translucent, stirring occasionally, 3 minutes. Add celery and garlic, and stir for another 2 minutes.

Add thyme, cardamom, white pepper, and salt; mix well. Add tomatoes; cook until they break down, 5 minutes. Add broth and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat, add beans and pumpkin, mix well, and cook until tender, 20 minutes.

Off heat, add rainbow chard and mix well; serve immediately.
