Chef's Tip: -Black beluga lentils are small, shiny black when cooked - resembling caviar. They have a mild, earthy flavor and soft texture. They are most commonly found dried in natural food stores, the organic section of some supermarkets or online specialty stores.
-Peppadew peppers are a sweet, slightly spicy South African pepper that can be found in the jarred olive and pickle aisle of most groceries or online specialty stores.
