Frequently Asked Questions

What can I substitute white wine with?

If for whatever reason you want to remove the alcohol from this dish without compromising on the flavor, you can use apple cider vinegar. ACV has the same notes as white wine and will give you the same flavors. However, remember that ACV can be quite strong, so use less than the recommended amount.
