Lentils are discus shaped edible seeds from the legume family and are a food staple in Asian and North African cuisines.

 Black beluga lentils get their name because they resemble beluga caviar. They are fantastic at absorbing other flavours and retain their shape and al dente texture when cooked (unlike red and yellow lentils). These qualities make them an excellent choice for salads and pilafs.

Cooking with Black Beluga Lentils

Rinse thoroughly before cooking. Place the rinsed lentils in a pot, cover with water, bring to the boil and leave to simmer uncovered for 15–20 minutes, then drain and rinse in cold water to prevent further cooking. 

Cooked lentils can be added to wraps, salads and pilafs, as well as making great partners to fish, poultry and meat dishes.
