Named for their resemblance to caviar, Black Beluga Lentils are earthy-sweet and slightly peppery, with a more delicate flavor than regular brown lentils. Zürsun partners with small Idaho farms to produce this rare heirloom bean varietal, which originated in the Middle East. These lentils pair beautiful with flavors like earthy garlic, tangy cheeses like feta and bright contrasts such as vinegars and citrus. Try dressing up a bowl of lentils with extra-virgin olive oil or toasted nut/seed oil (pecan, walnut, sesame), a splash of cider or wine vinegar and chopped parsley. Black Beluga Lentils' complexity makes them perfect as a simple side dish, but they can also be a base for more complex salads or grain bowls. Switch up your dressing and herbs, add roasted or sautéed vegetables of your choice, then toss with some chewy steamed barley or rice and top with a fried egg for an easy, filling and delicious meal.
