Organic Black Beluga Lentils glisten beautifully after cooking, giving them a similar look to beluga caviar. The smallest of the lentils, they are faster cooking and retain more of their texture and shape, while still absorbing a lot of flavor. Great for soups, salads, and as a meat substitute.
Organic Beluga Lentils have a deep black tone and are named after the caviar they resemble. Beluga are less common than other lentil varieties and are grown in the cool dry climates of America and Canada’s Northern plains. Beluga lentils stay firmer and more intact than other forms of lentil so are popular in dishes such as salad or braised lentils. The water they are cooked in turns black and this can be used to add rich colour to other foods such as soups or rice. Organic Black Beluga Lentils are versatile and tasty, nutty in flavor and tender once cooked.
