Organic Black Beluga Lentils by Hatton Hill Organic. Organically grown, harvested and dried in Canada. Packed in the UK.

Lentils are the oldest known pulses cultivated by humans, their domestication dating back at least 11,000 years. Originating in central and western Asia, they have been a staple in regional cuisine whose popularity has spread globally – especially on the Indian subcontinent – thanks to their versatility, high nutritional values and distinctive taste. Black beluga lentils – named for their striking resemblance to the finest variety of caviar – boast a flavour that is both richer and earthier than other lentil varieties, and cook in only about 20 minutes. They hold their shape better than brown or red lentils, which allows them to be integrated into to a wider range of dishes, adding a dramatic dash of exotic black to almost any culinary creation.

PURE, PREMIUM PRODUCT: Naturally grown, harvested and dried in Canada, Hatton Hill Organic’s black beluga lentils bring a distinctive touch to any dish in which they are used, and are an elegant antidote to misleading characterizations of lentils overall as mundane mush for hippies and health-obsessives – despite their numerous health benefits!

USES: Hatton Hill Organic’s black beluga lentils can be used in an incredibly wide range of dishes, from salads, sides, stews, soups, ragouts, dips and much else besides. They take less time to cook than green lentils, yet hold their shape just as well, which makes them a natural for serving either as a mainstay dish or for including in other dishes as a striking, flavoursome addition. Try black beluga lentils as a bed for fish, spiced as a side dish with yoghurt and mint, as the star attraction in vegetarian shepherd’s pie, as the main ingredient in fritters or burgers, sprinkled over salads and other dishes, and in myriad other ways (marinating black beluga lentils ahead of cooking is one sure-fire way to tap their full flavour potential). Black beluga lentils offer culinary possibilities that are practically endless – so experiment to your heart’s content!

PULSE OF LIFE: When we say, “to your heart’s content”, we mean it quite literally, since lentils, like many other pulses, have long been linked to heart health. Black beluga lentils are rich in antioxidants, with B vitamins, iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc. Big on healthy fibre, super-lean, and loaded with nutrients (including more protein than any other variety of lentil), Hatton Hill Organic’s black beluga lentils are a visually stunning, stylish superfood that no creative kitchen should be without.
