I love this! Awesome job Simona, researching a very little known and rare legume. Is there any place it could be ordered online? Thanks for your contribution to the roundup.

Interesting recipe. Thanks for sharing this and the info!

Simona Carini

Thank you, Claudia :)
Roveja is (still) little known in the US. This is an online source: https://www.markethallfoods.com/products/roveja-peas-from-la-valletta
and I found a source of seeds, it you’d like to try growing it

Thank you, Debra :)

I love learning all about these different types of polenta. I had no idea that each region had their own kind.

Simona Carini

My home region is famous for several specialty legumes, Wendy, including lentils from Castelluccio and tiny beans called "fagiolina". It's paradise for legume-lovers :)

I know I'm way late commenting ..... have always loved making polenta, so as you say this is a different approach to making that dish and looks like something great to try while we are digging out from snow this month

Simona Carini

Making polenta was a kind of ritual in our family. My grandmother would make it in a big copper pot hanging inside the fireplace over coals. Hard to beat on cold winter days. I hope the coming storm is not as bad as the forecast say, Cathy. Stay safe :)
