Black Beluga® Lentils
Black Lentils are tiny, jet-black lentils that resemble the elegant beluga caviar. They have a mild and earthy flavor and firm texture, holding their shape well through the cooking process.
Carefully sort lentils and rinse thoroughly. Bring 4 cups water to boil in saucepan. Slowly stir in 1 cup lentils. Reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until lentils are still firm, but cooked through about 25 minutes. Do not overcook. Drain lentils and rinse with cold water. Season with salt. Refrigerate until serving.
