Organic Beluga Beluga lentils are a type of small, black lentil, which get their name from their resemblance to Beluga caviar.
Our organic black beluga lentils are small, glossy black legumes that have a delightful nutty, and slightly earthy, flavour and aroma. These yummy lentils are fast cooking, requiring no pre-soaking, and remain whole when done. Delicious and convenient in salads, burgers, soups and more. Lentils are one of the oldest sources of food, dating back nearly 9,000 years.
They make a great cupboard staple because they are high in protein and fibre. They are also a rich source of nutrients with one 70g serving offering high levels of B1, Folate, Iron, Zinc and a source of B5, B6, Magnesium, Manganese, Potassium, Phosphorus and Copper. Beluga Lentils make a good addition to vegetarian and vegan recipes because they are high in iron. They are also a source of protein so make a great meat substitute in curries and stews. Beluga lentils are al dente and firm when cooked which gives a meaty, dense texture to soups and stews.
