The other evening I wanted to sneak up something fast for dinner. It became a delicious salad with quinoa, fresh figs and mustard dressing!
Today I make bolognese with Beluga lentils and red wine, crazy good for both pasta’s and to enjoy with tortilla and guacamole! The red wine will bring the lentils to the next level so be sure to choose a decent one for this dish!
Beluga lentils are the king of al lentils, named after the caviar with the same name. They stay perfectly in shape when cooking, easy to prepare without any soaking as many other legumes and taste wonderful. This salad I started to make about 20 years ago and I keep coming back to it with small changes. Meet my favorite crunchy beluga lentil salad!
