Black beluga lentils are small, glossy black legumes that have a nutty, slightly earthy flavour.  They’re easy to use as they’re fast cooking, don’t require presoaking and hold their shape well.  Our certified organic black beluga lentils are non-GMO.

Create delicious lentil burgers with besan flour, spices and herbs.  Puree cooked lentils for dips and to thicken hotpots or include them cold in wraps and salads.

Beluga lentils are delicious combined with charred asparagus, brussels sprouts and fresh green leaves or add them directly to stews, soups and hot pots. Black belugas are also easy to sprout for fresh and delicious salads.


How to Use:

There’s no need to presoak beluga lentils.  Put them in a pot with at least twice the ratio of cold water.  Bring to the boil then simmer 25 to 30 minutes or until tender.  Do not add salt to the water during cooking as this can cause them to become tough.

Uncooked beluga lentils can be added directly to hotpots, curries, hearty broths and thick lentil soups.

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.

Sprouting Lentils:

Black Beluga lentils are easy to sprout in a glass jar and are ready to eat in just 2 to 4 days.  Have crunchy, nutritious sprouts for salads, sandwiches and stir fries at a fraction of the price of buying them.
