recipe measurements advice

I have a soup recipe that calls for 1 quart chicken broth and 1 cup dry white wine. I have a quart container of a culinary chicken broth that already has white wine in it, as well as some herbs. Can I just use this quart, or do I need to add something else to make up for the extra cup of liquid? It's a garlic cream soup.

  • Depending on what else is in the soup, you may need another cup of liquid. If you have a can of chicken broth, use that in addition. If you don't have more broth and you have some chicken bouillon cubes, use one of those and a cup of water. If you don't have either of those, you could add just one cup of plain water but it might affect the flavor of your soup just a bit. You could start out with the quart that you have and see what the consistency is like. Then if it's too thick, you could add the other cup of water.

  • I never measure when I cook, I do everything by taste. That is the way I learned to cook from my grandmothers. The only time I measure is when I bake and I rarely do that.

    You should be able to use the broth you have, just add a bit more water.
