Black Beluga Lentils - Trader Joe's

These lentils were pre-cooked so all I had to do was pop them in the microwave for about 1 1/2 minutes.

I love the way they look...remind me of caviar. In the photo they just look like black beans but they are actually much smaller than beans, rounder and a little flat.

The boy didn't like them plain but he talked about how much he liked them in the finished dish (pork fried rice with lentils). The girl thought they tasted like beans "and something else".

It's weird but to me they tasted like tea leaves. Not that I'm in the habit of consuming tea leaves.
