Please, need help with 10 bean soup mix from Sprouts

The directions are really boring:

Soak 2 cups of 10 bean mix overnight. Drain water, put in 4 cups fresh water, bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 3 to 3 1/2 hours. Add your favorite vegetables.

I'm soaking the bean mix right now, but I'm thinking of starting with some hot Italian turkey sausage out of the casing tomorrow. Crumble that up and once it is cooked set it aside. Continue with a mirepoix, some chicken stock, add the bean mix, maybe some frozen spinach. then add the sausage back in and top with some grated pecorino romano.

My other option would be to do a mirepoix and then shred some rotisserie chicken and add some Indian spices to the chicken stock and bean mix. Maybe use the immersion blender to make it a smoother texture.

Downloaded the ingredients from the Sprouts website: Black Beans, Lentils, Green Split Peas, Pinto Beans, Small White Beans, Red Lentils, Yellow Split Peas, Pearl Barley, Small Red Beans, Adzuki Beans.

I'm open to all of your suggestions. I want something healthy that I can portion out and freeze for quick lunches at work.
