Description

Beluga lentils, also known as black lentils, are a type of small, round lentils that get their name from their resemblance to beluga roe due to their shiny black color. These lentils are a popular variety of lentils used in cooking and are known for their rich, earthy flavor and firm texture.

Beluga lentils are often used in salads, soups, stews and side dishes. They hold their shape well even after cooking, so they are suitable for dishes where you want the lentils to remain intact and not become mushy. Because of their striking appearance, they are often used to add visual appeal to dishes, especially when contrasted with other colorful ingredients.

Like other types of lentils, beluga lentils are also a good source of protein, fiber and various essential nutrients. Compared to some other legumes, they cook relatively quickly and do not require soaking before cooking, making them a convenient option for eating.

Eko planet black beluga lentils are made from lentils grown according to the principles of organic farming. Organic farming generally involves avoiding the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides and genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and promoting sustainable and environmentally friendly agricultural methods.
One of the advantages of organic foods is that they may contain less harmful synthetic chemical residues used in conventional farming. In addition, supporting organic agriculture can promote more sustainable and environmentally friendly farming practices.

Usage

With a unique appearance and rich texture, Beluga lentils can be used in a variety of dishes, adding flavor, nutrition and visual appeal. Here are some ideas for using beluga lenses:

Salads: Beluga lentils are perfect for salads. Cook the lentils until tender but still firm, then allow them to cool before tossing them with the chopped vegetables, herbs and flavorful sauce. They give the salad a nice texture.

Soups and Stews: Add cooked beluga lentils to soups or stews to boost their nutritional value and give them a slightly chewy texture. They are great in hearty vegetable soups, bean stews, and even meat soups.

Side dishes: Serve cooked beluga lentils as a side dish, seasoned with herbs, spices and a drizzle of olive oil. They go well with roasted vegetables, grilled meat or fish.

Stuffed vegetables: if you don't eat meat, stuff peppers, zucchini or other vegetables with boiled beluga lentils, rice or couscous, chopped vegetables and a mixture of spices. Cook until the vegetables are tender and the flavors have blended.

Mexican Lentil Tacos: Use cooked beluga lentils as a taco filling. Season them with taco seasoning and serve with your favorite taco toppings like lettuce, tomato, cheese and salsa.

Cold Lentil Salad: Create a cold lentil salad by tossing cooked beluga lentils with diced cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, red onion, feta cheese and your favorite vinaigrette.

Remember to wash and sort the lenses to remove dirt before cooking. Cooking time can vary, but beluga lentils are usually cooked for about 20-25 minutes. It is best to keep an eye on them and check for doneness while cooking.

Feel free to get creative and experiment with different ingredients and flavors to find your favorite way to use beluga lentils in your cooking. Bon appetit!
