A vegetarian favourite, this nourishing wholefood provides high levels of protein and dietary fibre, while being naturally low in fat and sugar.

Lentils readily absorb the flavours of the ingredients they are cooked with, making them super versatile. Black beluga lentils hold their shape well during cooking, so they’re great for salads and pilafs.

HOW TO

As these Black Beluga Lentils are fast cooking it is not necessary to pre-soak them before cooking. However, some people may choose to do so for 30-60 minutes to reduce any remaining Saponin, a naturally occurring coating on seeds and pulses.

Rinse. Add 1 cup of lentils to 4 cups boiling water. Cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes, until tender. Do not add salt to water during cooking as this can cause the ‘skin’ of pulses to become tough.

  • Try with fresh green leaves and charred asparagus or Brussel sprouts.
  • Create irresistible vegan lentil burgers with besan flour, spices and fresh herbs
  • Puree for dips and to thicken hotpots.
  • Black Belugas are also suitable for sprouting; fresh and delicious for raw foods and salads. Uncooked Beluga Lentils can be well rinsed and then added directly to hotpots.
  • Perfect for curries, hearty broths and thick lentil soups; cook with spices and vegetables, adding water or stock as needed, till tender and delicious – about 25-30 minutes.
