Vermouth can make a great replacement for wine in recipes.
One night we had no white wine in the house when Bryan went to make one of my favorite dishes, a chicken and garlic stew that calls for a hardy addition of white wine.
I did have plenty of white vermouth in the fridge, which he hit upon trying instead of beer, which is the usual go-to replacement. We really liked the result, so when he made it again last night, he replicated the experiment, again to our great delight. The broth came out really rich and flavorful.
This is a dish we usually prefer as leftovers (and i generally eschew leftovers), but made with vermouth, it’s actually as good, maybe even better, right off the stove.
