Alb-Leisa of the Beluga lentil variety in a 500g folding box: A small-seeded lentil variety with a deep black shell.
This Alb-Leisa variety has a delicate taste and is reminiscent of roasted chestnuts. The prepared beluga lentil has a slightly creamy consistency.
Which lentils taste best? In our opinion, it is difficult to answer whether these are really beluga lentils. Our experience shows that every type of lentil has its own fans and of course in the end it all depends on the cooked lentil dish itself!
The Beluga lentil, like all of our Alb-Leisa varieties, is grown in the Swabian Alb and in the Alb foothills by the farmers of our organic producer group. The organic lenses are certified according to Bioland's cultivation guidelines.
Soaking the lentils before cooking is not necessary. The lentils are cooked for 20-30 minutes in approximately twice the amount of water. Add salt only after cooking. In a pressure cooker the cooking time is halved.
