[Fiction Recreation] Takumi Aldini's Insalata Frittata Recipe



This was a recipe that appeared to be a mass of indiscernible black mass to me in the manga.. which made recreating it kind of a pain since I'm far too impatient for my own good. Uh, no I did not trawl through the Japanese side of google for the recipe and renditions of it made, what are you talking about? Yet another reason to curse my lack of fluency in the language. Digression aside, this is delicious and you must make it. No arguments allowed. It's simple. Versatile. Adaptable. Cheap. Can be accomplished if you only have a single stovetop. Healthy-ish. Really, it's another recipe that shines in this anime. It's something you can blissfully indulge in offset by the balsamic vinaigrette and abundance of vegetables.


Caramelise finely diced onion and bacon (or any meat), in a 18cm diameter pan or approximate. 

'
Beat together eggs and cheese. Season. Add a splash of milk if it requires more volume. 



Add mushrooms and rosemary, cook until browned. 


Remove mixture, add more oil if necessary. Layer sliced potatoes. 


Layer diced capsicum (uncooked to preserve its texture)


Layer the bacon, mushroom, onion and hastily added rosemary mixture. (Although in hindsight, mixing it with the capsicum would've resulted in a more aesthetically pleasing frittata)


Pour over the egg and cheese mixture, shake the pan to ensure even distribution, cover and cook for 15-20 minutes. If you have a cast iron skillet, you can bake it to yield a glorious golden crust. 


Whisk 2 tblsp balsamic vinegar,  3 tblsp olive oil, 1 tsp mustard seeds and 1 tblsp honey until well combined. 


Allow frittata to cool before cutting into wedges to toss with salad. 


Tear lettuce leaves, cut cucumber into slices, tomatoes into wedges, arrange. 


Drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette, grate parmesan cheese over it and enjoy!
