Product Information

PRODUCT INFO

Strikingly black in color, the black beluga lentil gets its name from its visual similarity to beluga caviar when cooked.

The lentil, a dried seed of a small shrub, is an ancient staple in southern Asia that has been consumed for over 8,000 years. Besides possessing a mild earthy flavor of their own, lentils take on flavors well and have extremely high levels of protein (26%) and iron. When mixed with grains (traditionally rice) on the same plate, the resulting meal provides complete plant-based protein.

STORAGE

Lentils should be stored in a cool, dry place until needed.

RECIPES & TIPS

As a group, lentils pair well with garlic, onions, vinegar (sherry or wine), mint, olive oil, citrus, and sausages. Beluga lentils are perfect for side dishes and whole-lentil soups as they maintain their texture and shape well.
