Beluga lentils are a type of small, black lentil, which get their name from their resemblance to Beluga caviar. They have a delicate taste and are fantastic at absorbing other flavours. These lentils cook fast, retain their shape and remain al dente in texture, which is great for meal prepping because they can last an entire week in the fridge!
- Most nutritious variety of lentils. One half cup of uncooked black lentils provides 26g protein, 18g fiber, 100mg calcium, 8mg iron, and 960mg potassium
- Rich in anthocyanins – the same powerful antioxidant found in dark berries like blueberries and blackberries. These antioxidants are great at preventing damage to cells by free-radicals.
