We’ve been experimenting with beluga lentils. Dave calls them baby belugas. They’re smaller and rounder than flat lentils. Some call them the caviar of the lentil world.
Timeless Foods got their start growing lentils. They were basically the first people to grow lentils in the United States. If you’re interested, there’s a book on the subject. We’re selling it at HFI.
Lentils are magical because they create their own fertilizer. They don’t need chemical fertilizer. We’ve been making a salad with cranberries and pistachios. We’ll be featuring it at Whole Foods and in our restaurants for the next few weeks. Let us know what you think!
