Black Caviar Lentil

Regular price $ 6.25

1 Lb Bag

Small, gentle, quick-cooking lentils with a luxurious flavor and texture. Firm yet creamy, they are sure to be your new best friend in the kitchen.

Hearty, small ebony lentils that resemble caviar but have a unique lentil taste and texture. The skins almost melt away. Versatile and indulgent, they are less common than brown or green lentils and are at home in both rustic dishes and elegant meals. 

We ignored lentils for years, but we will ignore them no longer! They are one of the earliest cultivated crops and have been a source of sustenance for humans for thousands of years. History aside, what we love about them is that they are quick-cooking, they taste delicious, and they only need a few aromatic vegetables and a splash of good olive oil to make a great meal.

Please note: These lentils were harvested on equipment shared with wheat. We are finding some wheat kernels mixed in with the lentils and if wheat is an allergen for you, we recommend avoiding this crop. As with all our crops, we recommend sorting and checking for organic debris, and rinsing well.

"Every day it seems like there's a new startup claiming high-protein cricket flour will heal the world, that we're supposedly on the verge of a golden age of lab-grown meat. When I hear about stuff like that lately, I can't help but think: when we've got lentils this good, why go through the trouble?"
