I love a good challenge! Recently I participated in a North Indian cuisine challenge and today I am submitting these Roman Eggs to The Roman Recipe Challenge hosted by Natascha’s Palace. There is a long, rich history about Eggs in Roman cuisine. I’d never really thought about how they cooked in days long gone but did you know that eggs were one of the most expensive food items?

In light of today’s abstinence and fasting I have prepared a meat-free dish that is healthy, tasty and very filling. Continue reading
