Black Beluga Lentil Pilaf Recipe

Black Beluga Lentil Pilaf
Servings: 4

No, silly, not fish roe! A recently discovered heirloom pulse I tried for the first time, beluga lentils are earthy and delicious; not mealy or dry textured! Once cooked, the lentils do look like caviar! Makes a good filling for tortillas, too! Recipe compliments of Westbrae Naturals (with just a few minor changes.)
