There are a number of savory pottages that would work well. One that comes
to mind in particular is "Beef y-Stewed" out of Two Fifteenth Century
Cookery books (page 6).

Here is the my translation of the recipe:
Take fair beef of the ribs of the fore quarters, and smite in fair pieces,
and wash the beef into a fair pot; then take the water that the beef was
soaked in, and strain it through a strainer, and set the same water and
beef in a pot, and let them boil together; then take cinnamon, cloves,
mace, grains of paradise, cubebs, and minced onions, parsley, and sage, and
cast there-to, and let them boil together; and then take a loaf of bread,
and steep it with broth and vinegar, and then draw it through a strainer,
and let it be still; and whan it is near enough, cast the liquid there-to,
but not too much, and then let boil once, and cast saffron there-to a
quantity, then take salt and vinegar, and cast there-to, and look that it
be poignant enough and serve forth.

I know I have a redaction of this on my home computer.
