(Lens culinaris) – An heirloom variety of black lentil that gets its name from its resemblance to beluga caviar. Small in size and keeps color well when cooked. Higher in protein content than black turtle beans.
Planting suggestions: Sow in Spring. A cool season legume crop that finishes in the summer heat. Harvest when pods are rattling but before they crack open! Plants may still have some flowers on them with finished pods ready. Small pods contain 2 lentils each with 1 to 2 dozen pods per plant. Cut or pull up plants and dry them on tarps for about a week to dry completely. Thresh and winnow.
These black beauties are the cavier of lentils. Black Beluga lentils are even smaller than Red Chief lentils, slightly more rounded, and just as striking in their own way. Softening to a rich dark brown, they glisten when cooked, hold their shape, and have a warm, nutty flavor that lends itself to a wide range of spices.Make the most of your midday meal with this salad. It’s loaded with proteins and vitamins without sacrificing flavor. You can adjust the jalapeños for a more mild or super spicy taste. Plus, you can serve this hot or cold, so it’s great to make and bring with you while you are on the go.
Never grown this before, but enjoy the flavor of the cooked lentils. Can’t wait for spring
