How to Use

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. These lentils remain whole when cooked and are wonderful in wraps and salads; try with fresh green leaves and charred asparagus or brussel sprouts. Create irresistible vegan lentil burgers with besan flour, spices and fresh herbs; or 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.To pre-cook these lentils, rinse thoroughly before bringing to boil in a pot of water at a ratio of 1:3. Reducing to a simmer and cook for 20-25 minutes or until tender. Do not add salt to water during cooking as this can cause the 'skin' of pulses to become tough. These scrumptious black belugas are a handy and versatile addition to the pantry.
