Although she felt Steve (i)____________ the subtlety of the delicious stew recipe with his addition of the sweet potato
Steve makes changes with his addition of the sweet potato. Augmented (to add, to change) works best. Depleted (to decrease) and permeated (to pass into) is irrelevant

she thought the pungent onion (ii)____________ the otherwise (iii)____________ taste combination.
We must infer the first sentence to go to the second sentence.
Steve add sweet potato to augment the stew, while she thought the stew is already has a lot of taste (onion). The pungent onion is too many (overwhelmed). Satiated (to supply with anything to excess) is similar but not fit with the word taste. Exaggerated is also similar but I think it is wrong in the context of the sentence. The best choice is overwhelmed
The taste is overwhelmed by onion. So the taste is moderate. Delicate works best. Zesty (energetic) is irrelevant. Detestable is also irrelevant.

Hope it helps
