Have any good recipes made with white wine?

Asked by JLeslie (47233 points ) June 20th, 2011

I just opened a bottle of white wine for a recipe, and my husband and I don’t drink wine typically, so I want to try to use it up before it goes bad in some other dishes.

Nothing with lots of butter or cream please, although ok if it has a small amount.

Also, I am willing to entertain some sort of drink cocktail type spritzer concoction, not consuming much alcohol in the end, thing.

Thanks everyone.

I don’t know any food recipes off the top of my head using white wine, but I do know of a good cocktail which uses white wine as its only alcoholic component.

Pour 2 ounces pineapple juice, 2 ounces club soda, and a half teaspoon of sugar in a large glass and stir well. Then, add 2 ounces of white wine and crushed ice and stir again. Garnish with a strawberry. It’s called “Aloha Bubbly.”

The next time you cook something in a skillet, use it to deglaze your pan and create a fabulous sauce.

Baby clams with blush sauce over linguine.
1lb of butter
6 cloves of minced garlic
1 can of diced tomatoes in juice
1 large can of baby clams in juice
1 tbsp of ground black pepper
1 tsp of clam base paste
your bottle of wine

In a large pot, put all the ingredients except for the wine in and cook it over high heat for a few minutes to thicken it up and then pour in the wine. Turn down to a simmer for an hour. Cook and drain your pasta and then scoop individual portions into a skillet and pour two ladles of the sauce over and sautee to a steam/condense for two minutes. Serve with a little squeeze of fresh lemon juice.

I used to use it in veal piccata. Or, if you can find thin sliced turkey, turkey piccata.

I say a lot of funny things here, so sometimes people don’t realize when I am serious.

This question is in the General Section. I am serious regarding my answer.

Don’t cook with it. Warm it to body temperature, and apply it as an enema.
You won’t be sorry.

Use it as the base for stock for slow cooked chicken or pork or chickpeas/beans and vegetables. Choose starchy root veg. Brown the onions and meat. Add the veg/beans, add herbs or a stock cube, add the wine. Cook for a few hours at a low heat. Nom nom
