The suggestions of Nuxia :
If you are vegan or want to reduce the calories in this tasty recipe , you can substitute with Tofu parmesan cheese into small pieces. If you do not particularly love the cream of vinegar, you can substitute it with soy sauce . Or , more simply : replace both ingredients with those recommended .
For those on a diet : corn oil is also an excellent substitute extra virgin olive oil .
