Small but nutritionally mighty member of the legume family
Fieldstone Organic Black Lentils grown right here in the Okanagan.
Named after the glossy plump shape of the beluga whale, these black Lentils are a small but nutritionally mighty member of the legume family. They boast a complex rich flavour and readily absorb flavours from other foods and seasoning’s making them delicious and versatile.
The Healthiest Way of Cooking Lentils
To boil lentils, use three cups of liquid for each cup of lentils. Lentils placed in already boiling water will be easier to digest than those that were brought to a boil with the water. When the water returns to a boil, turn down the heat to simmer and cover and boil for 20 minutes.
These cooking times can be slightly adjusted depending upon the final use. If you are going to be serving lentils in a salad or soup and desire a firmer texture, remove them from the stove top when they have achieved this consistency–typically 5-10 minutes earlier than their usual cooking time. If you are making dal or some preparation that requires a mushier consistency, achieving this texture may take an additional 10-15 minutes.
