I would not consider this a redaction, it's a modification of a modern
recipe. To me, the essence of a recipe redaction is taking a recipe
that is uncertain due to lack of measurements and time, changes in
ingredients and so on, researching it, and then testing it until you
get something edible out of the original recipe - changing butter to
olive oil and leaving off croutons is simply changing a modern recipe.
On the other hand, it's not plagiarism either - it's just changing a
modern recipe to something a little bit different. We do that all the


Redaction: The process or the result of modifying, shaping or editing a
text. Also taking oral to written form.
