Put the oil in the cooking pot of the Cuisinart® Rice Plus™ Multi-Cooker. Select the Quick Cook function and press Start. Once oil is hot and shimmering, about 2 minutes, add the sausage; cook until browned, about 4 minutes. Remove sausage; reserve. Add the onions, ½ of the red peppers, garlic, and spices. Sauté until softened, about 4 minutes. Add the water, beans, and bay leaf. Switch to the Soup function and set the timer for 1 hour and 30 minutes. Close the lid of the cooker and press Start. Once the audible tone has sounded to indicate the end of cooking time, open the lid of the cooker and stir in the reserved red peppers, sausage and the remaining ingredients. Serve immediately.
