  • Stage 4 or later:
  • Sauté the sausage in the fat until it’s nicely browned, about 15 minutes. Remove to a plate. Add the onions to the pan and sauté until translucent. Add the garlic and stir for another minute. Transfer onions and garlic to a soup pot. Add the stock to the pot. Bring to a boil, skim, and discard the scum. Add the tomatoes and simmer 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly.
