Sowpys Dorry

Nym onyons & mynce hem smale & fry hem in oyle dolyf.  Nym wyne & boyle yt wyth onyouns.  Toste wyte bred & do yt in dischis, & gode almand mylk also, & do the wyne with onyons above & serve yt forth. (Forme of Cury)

Take onions and mince them small and fry them in olive oil.  Toast white bread and put it in dishes, and good almond milk also, and add the wine with onions above and serve it forth.

Almond milk (using 2 oz ground almonds, 1/2 cup reserved water and 1/2 cup of the wine)
1 bottle (750 ml) dry white wine or half wine, half water
3-4 large onions, minced or thinly sliced
salt to taste
bread, toasted, for sops

Parboil the onions in water for 5 minutes.  Drain, reserving the water.  Draw up almond milk according to the directions on the index page. Heat the oil in a large stew pot and stir in the onions.  Cook over low heat 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add the rest of the wine to the onions; cover pot and simmer 15 minutes.  Add almond milk and cook a few more minutes.  Salt to taste.  Place a slice of toasted bread in each serving bowl and pour the soup over the toast.
