We do have requests for (see tag info), but I for one, has not seen request for replacing specific ingredients of a cooking recipes before. However this specific request felt off-topic, and as commented sounded more appropriate for the Seasoned Advice SE site.

But the line between what is a lifehack, a common knowledge solution, or a request better answered on a different site, could be a little blurry. And sometimes it can even be on-topic for several sites, which makes it even harder.

So your question is currenlty on-hold as off-topic, and I don't see any good reasons to re-open it. And normally the procedure to reopen would be for you to make (a substantial) edit to your post, and vote for reopen in a link below the answer.
