Black Belugia Lentils is the smallest of the lentil family. This black beauty is rich in flavor and deeply satisfying, and has the highest protein of any lentil. This little jewel is a great choice for dramatic side dishes and pilafs. These tiny lentils hold their intense black color and shape even after cooking. They have an amazing ability to absorb flavors making them a favorite addition to chicken, fish and meat dishes.
To cook: Sort and rinse. Add 1 cup of lentils to 3 cups of water. Bring to a boil and then simmer on low heat for about 30 minutes or until tender. Lentils do not need to be soaked before cooking.
1. Cooking time is about 30 to 40 minutes for main dishes
2. Cooking time is about 45 to 60 minutes for purees and soups.

It is better to cook lentils to a firm stage for salads, freezing and longer-cooking recipes. If you plan to puree or mash the lentils, cook until very soft.

Wow! These little black beauties are delicious as a side dish but they really shine in a salad. Paired the cooked lentils with cooked brown rice, freshly grated carrot and tossed with a lemon-shallot vinaigrette. Served warm with goat cheese and baguette. These lentils are earthy and just slightly peppery...can't wait to have them again!
