Lentil lovers know—these tiny treasures make any dish heartier while packing in plant protein and nutrients.

 

When cooked, black beluga lentils closely resemble beluga caviar, but the similarities end there. Black beluga lentils are well known for their mild flavor and hearty texture, which, unlike other lentil varieties, can withstand the heat of cooking without getting mushy. For this reason, they are often preferred when preparing pilafs, salads and soups.

 

Did you know?

Lentils have been part of the human diet since before Neolithic times, with history of their consumption dating back as much as 13,000 years. The cultural history of lentils dates back to the Old Testament of the Bible; while in modern day India, lentils soaked in water are offered to gods in many temples. Popular in regions of Asia and the Mediterranean, lentils are often served with rice or prepared as part of a stew or soup.

 

Although people may think of lentils as “starchy,” eating them instead of bread or pasta, this legume is a multi-faceted, nutritional superstar, with 30% of lentils’ calories coming from protein. Lentils also contain rich stores of fiber, folate, vitamin B and minerals, and they’re known for their remarkable fiber and iron content.

 

How to enjoy them

 

Rinse lentils well before cooking. In a large pot, combine 1 cup of black beluga lentils with 3 cups of water. Bring water to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until water is absorbed and lentils are tender.
