Wookiee Hut Cuisine presents:
Slicer's Dump and Chop Bean Soup
by Rosie

Before the liberation of Coruscant, Castin Donn was a computer slicer of some note in the resistance movement on the Imperial throne world. As is typical of many programmers, he was so engrossed in his work that food was often whatever could be prepared with a minimum amount of time and effort. Opening cans and dumping them into a pot is just about as minimal as it gets. (Eating the contents of the cans without plating or heating is not considered cooking!)

When he joined the Wraiths, Castin made this soup for them when he drew KP duty. The next time he drew KP, he made it again. And again the third time. The Wraiths and staff soon discovered that this was the only thing he could cook! Despite this, the soup got rave reviews, and serving this to any Wraith now would draw tears in memory of the young, foolish, brave slicer!

1 x 15 oz can red or kidney beans
1 x 15 oz can black beans
1 x 15 oz can navy beans
1 x 15 oz can garbanzo beans
1 x 15 oz can black eyed peas with jalapeño peppers
1 x 15 oz can diced tomatoes for chili
1 to 2 x 15 oz cans of water
2 to 3 onions, chopped
4 to 5 carrots, chopped
4 to 5 ribs of celery
1 pkg Polish sausage or kielbasa cut into rings, approximately 1 inch wide
salt and pepper to taste after it has simmered for a while

In a large sauce pan dump the contents of all of the cans of beans and tomatoes listed above including all liquids in the cans. Add the chopped onions, carrots, celery and Polish sausage or kielbasa. Rinse the cans of beans one into the next to get all of the stuff that stuck to the insides of the cans when you dumped them into the pot. Add the 1 to 2 cans of this water to the pot depending on how soupy a soup you want. Cook over medium heat until it comes to a simmer then reduce heat to low and simmer for about 45 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. For a variation in flavor, add 1/4 tsp dried sage. For a little more kick, add 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes -- but be careful! It comes out very spicy. Serve with crusty sourdough rolls. Serves from 8 to 12, depending on appetites.
