Black (beluga) lentils are the caviar of legumes. Yes, they look like caviar, but more importantly they’re nutty in flavor and take on a beautiful shine when cooked. Here, they take the main stage in this incredibly savory vegetarian dish featuring creamy baby potatoes, crisp roasted shiitake mushrooms, and bold blue cheese.
Then make use of the protein powerhouse in Middle Eastern lentil burgers. Serve them open-faced on toasted naan with a harissa yogurt sauce for a burger everyone can love.
