Lentils (Lens Esculenta) are a very popular legume in South Asia, they are used
to make a beautiful black lentil soup. Black Beluga Lentils are 1/2 cm. wide
with a mild, earthly flavor and soft texture. This tiny lens shaped pulse has
traditionally been used as a meat substitute (A pulse is the dried seed of any
legume, such as beans and peas). Lentils are the seed of a small shrub and are
dried after harvesting. Lentils have been eaten for over 8000 years and
originated in Southwestern Asia along the Indus River. They are a staple food
for many South Asian cultures.
