I could eat these daily! LOVE them!Review by JoniI was surprised by how good these are. You can make so much with them. But even just butter and salt and they are to die for. Earthy tasting, smooth, creamy. Would blend with almost any flavor.
Tender "beluga caviar" lentils that don't get mushyReview by SuperI want to love lentils - as a nourishing whole food and a way to reduce but not eliminate meat consumption -
but I just don't care for the tooth-gritty feeling of many lentils. I bought every lentil offered on this site and am cooking my way through them. Still don't like split lentils (yellow, red, etc) but love black lentils and French green lentils - they stay whole and are tender/creamy when cooked. This black lentil is awesome cooked as Dal Makhani (Urvashi Pitre's recipe), with diced sausage and sweet potato. No gritty creepy tooth feeling! Whoo. Winner winner lentil dinner.
Easy to Prepare — a little makes a lot
- First, sort the lentils for any foreign matter and then rinse.
- Next, place lentils in a pot, cover with sufficient water, and bring to a slow boil. Reduce heat and simmer until tender. Add water as needed.
- Simmer time can vary from 15 minutes to an hour.
- Note: As with any supply of dry natural lentils, this product may contain small pebbles, so please remember to sort your lentils first.
Yield — 1 cup weighs about 1/2 pound. 2 cups of dry lentils equals about 4-5 cups cooked lentils.
Storage — Best if used within 24 months. Store tightly sealed in a dry location away from sunlight.
