"Braised black lentils, also known as beluga lentils, since they resemble the most prized of all caviar varieties, make up one of my favorite side dishes." — Chef John

salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
1 3/4 cups
chopped Italian parsley
I used vegetable stock instead of chicken. Came out delicious. This is how im having black lentils from now on.
I cooked these for at least 45 min with additional broth, and they still seemed too firm to me. I'm thinking that next time I should let the lentils soak in water overnight, perhaps. The flavor was really good, and I used a tarragon vinegar that I had on hand. I don't get much flavor our of parsley, so I think I will try cilantro next time as well.
This is excellent, especially when with Spicy Tarragon Yogurt Chicken.
