Notes: I made this dish with the Red Cross in Deva on 16 October, Romania’s National Hunger Day when the Red Cross offers a free meal to anyone who wants one. We cooked food for 55 people using these ingredients of no fixed quantities so it took me a while to figure out how to scale it down to feed myself. The vegetarian variations were my idea.

Variations: Add a hambone or some fried sausages for a jambalaya like bean dish.
Or serve with sour cream and a chopped red onion to spoon into your beans.
