  • Heat the oil in a pan over a medium heat. Add the diced sausage and cook for about two minutes, then add the onions, garlic and bay leaf. Season and cook until the onions are soft. Stir in the potatoes and sweat for a few minutes, stirring so they don’t stick. Pour in the stock or water, and simmer gently on a low heat until the potatoes are soft.
