LITTLEWIND, use a good red vinegar in place of alcohol.

I don't use alcohol either, though told the alcohol burns off in the cooking process. But, there are some sherry flavored cooking liquids found in the olive oil and vingar areas of the store. In many recipes I have seen that used or told to substitute more chicken or beef boullion/broth (low sodium of course) when omitting the sherry or any other alcohol.

I am very experimental when it comes to cooking. I get tired easily of the same old things. I love to figure out how I can turn some of my family's favorite comfort foods healthy by reducing fat, carbs and sodium, without sacrificing on the flavor.

Living in northern climes, I absolutely live on soup in the winter, but never found a mushroom one I liked (and that is one of my favorites!) As mentioned before, many recipies call for soup as a base so this will also be a big help for me there. I will definately try this. Thanks for posting.

P.S. I am not very experimental so any suggestions other than water, to substitute for the sherry (I don't use alcohol or alcohol type drinks, even in cooking.)

There is already talk of some of our favorites for the holidays in the months to come. This is a good topic to list any new takes on our Holiday favorites.

For the first recipe, we had mention of Green Bean Casserole being too high in sodium. Here are a couple of hyperlinks that I found on Spark Recipes for lower sodium versions of the green bean casserole, along with a low-sodium cream of mushroom soup, as that is where the major salt comes from in the recipe, since soup is loaded with sodium. Getting a lower salt form of the salt will cut the recipe way down. So whether you want to cut it somewhat or whether you need to cut the sodium severly, here are a few options.

Ok, now this one is the low sodium mushroom soup. Just take the regular recipe, use no salt added or fresh/frozen green beans, skip adding the salt to the recipe and use french fried onions, though substitute this low sodium mushroom soup for the canned version that is overloaded with sodium:
