WE CHOSE IT BECAUSE
It is part of those “forgotten” legumes but a true modern super food
A rare and forgotten legume. Rare because the area in which it is cultivated concerns only the border of the southern area between Umbria and Marche, in central Italy; forgotten because since the postwar period it has risked extinction because of its tiring and unprofitable cultivation methods. Today, thanks to a few heroic farmers, including the Angelini family, Roveja is slowly making a comeback and is even coveted by restaurants of a certain caliber because of its eclusiveness and its nutritional and organoleptic properties.
Despite its spontaneous growth, Roveja cannot be harvested using normal modern machines. In fact, the Angelini family has to deal not only with the prohibitive but at the same time exceptional growing conditions of the Umbrian Apennines, but also with a harvest that for Roveja must be compulsorily done by hand.
Very rich in iron, protein and carbohydrates, Roveja is ideal when used to prepare warm soups. Even boiled and served with warm bread croutons has its uses. It should be strictly accompanied by a drizzle of Italian extra virgin olive oil to enhance its flavor. It takes about 40 minutes to cook, with previous soaking for 12 hours.
INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
Would you be willing, to save a small amount of money, to compromise your health and the pleasure that properly made food brings you? Here, the benefits of good Italian food, the fruit of the expert hands of true artisans of the table, are these.
Over the years the raw material has lost its soul and food has become something to be swallowed without too much attention. Therefore, the time has come to take back the pleasure of being at the table and to start taking care of our bodies again, not only in appearance but also through what we ingest. To be able to do this, it is essential to know the exact origin of the raw material and the processing methods: we at Gustatium have thought about this for you, selecting the best small Italian producers and making them available to you on our website.
Cereals and legumes have always been the basis of human nutrition. In the famous Mediterranean diet, they are in fact the foods present in the greatest quantity together with vegetables, because they are the fruit of the generous earth and rich in nutritional properties.
It is essential for our well-being to start consuming unprocessed whole grains and legumes in large quantities again. Only in this way will we be able to make food our medicine.
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging and at the same time we cannot risk damaging in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cold cuts and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
