Need a substitute for vermouth in recipe

Clarissa Oct 29, 2005 07:47 PM

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.

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

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

          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.

            Use a sweet Riesling.
