Small, gentle, quick-cooking black caviar lentils with a luxurious flavor and texture. Firm yet creamy, they are sure to be your new best friend in the kitchen.
Suggestions: Salads, soups, stews
Hearty, small ebony lentils that resemble caviar but have a unique lentil taste and texture. The skins almost melt away. Versatile and indulgent, they are less common than brown or green lentils and are at home in both rustic dishes and elegant meals.
To cook, simmer gently with water, a bay leaf, and a garlic clove until done, about 20 to 25 minutes. Check them often as they can overcook quickly.
You can use these in recipes calling for Black Beluga lentils.
