What Can I Use in Place of Shallots?
Any other form of onion will work as a substitute for shallots. White onions and yellow onions are the best to use. Cute them up into one inch pieces and throw them in the recipe for a similar effect.
You can use onion in the place of shallots. Shallots are pretty much a tiny onion. They are more mild in flavor. You would want to use a purple onion if you want the same color that a shallot has.
