Need a substitute for vermouth in recipe

  • c
  • 5

I'm making artichoke and mushroom lasagne (from Epicurious) and the vegetables are sauteed with a cup of vermouth, most of which is cooked out. One of us isn't a fan of vermouth. Can I substitute 1/2 a cup of white wine? I don't want a strong wine taste, but I guess I need to cook the vegetables in something.

Thanks in advance.

  1. Use a sweet Riesling.

    1. Just use some Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc. The dry vermouth is an herbed dry white wine, you really don't want a sweeter wine unless your partner dislikes dry whites.

      1. I almost always substitute vermouth for a dryish white wine. I'm sure you could do it the other way 'round.

        1. Thanks to all for the suggestions!

          1. For an non-alcoholic alternative...use chicken stock.
