"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."

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.
Will become a standard.
This is excellent, especially when with Spicy Tarragon Yogurt Chicken.
