The Sultan's Onions

This quick and easy veggie dish has an unusual mix of flavors that works out well as a side dish in hot or cold weather.

When you start "tasting it in your mind", it suddenly seems copacetic with all sorts of dishes, from beef and pork to poultry to seafood. There's not much to it except for a brilliant combination of just a few flavors. 

This is best with a light vegetable or chicken stock. A beef stock would overpower the raisins. I don't know how well a fish stock would go.

This can be made a day ahead and reheated in the microwave. Leftovers store well. 

4 Servings
Preparation time
30 minutes
  1. Heat the wine to boiling and add the thyme in a heavy pan with a tight-fitting lid, then add the onions.
  2. When the wine is mostly boiled down, add the raisins and the hot stock. Cover and simmer on low heat for 25 minutes.
  3. Take off the lid and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper as needed.
  4. Strain into a serving dish and serve hot.
