Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup dried kidney bean
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2/3 lbs kielbasa sausages sliced
  • 2 onions diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 4 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 carrots sliced
  • 2 celery sliced
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt

Method

In bowl, cover beans with 4-1/2 cups (1.125 L) water. Cover and soak overnight; drain, discarding water.

In Dutch oven, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat; cook kielbasa, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 5 minutes. With slotted spoon, transfer to paper towel–lined plate; set aside.

Heat remaining oil in pan over medium heat; cook onions and garlic until softened, 6 minutes. Stir in tomato paste and paprika; cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

Add beans, kielbasa, 9 cups (2.25 L) water and bay leaf; bring to boil. Skim off any foam. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until beans are tender, about 45 minutes.

Stir in carrots, celery and salt; simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Discard bay leaf.
