Total Time 1 hour 45 minutes


Pickled Peach

  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp McCormick Gourmet Mustard Seed
  • 1 peach pitted and finely chopped

Black Beluga Lentil Toasts

  • 1/2 cup dried black beluga lentils
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tsp Club House Sea Salt Grinder
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp chives finely chopped, fresh, divided
  • 1/2 tsp McCormick Gourmet Thyme Leaves
  • 1/2 cup crème fraîche
  • 24 thin baguette slices toasted


  • For the Pickled Peach, bring vinegar, sugar and mustard seed to simmer in small saucepan on medium heat. Reduce heat to low; cook 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes to cool. Pour over chopped peach in small bowl; toss gently to coat. Refrigerate 1 hour or until chilled.
  • Meanwhile, for the Lentil Toasts, rinse and drain lentils. Place lentils, water and sea salt in small saucepan. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 20 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat and uncover. Cool to room temperature in remaining liquid. Drain.
  • Mix drained lentils, oil, 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the chives and thyme in medium bowl until blended. To serve, spread about 1 tsp (5 mL) crème fraîche on toasted baguette slice. Top with about 1 tbsp (15 mL) lentil mixture and 1 tsp (5 mL) Pickled Peach. Garnish with remaining chives.


Test Kitchen Tip: Black beluga lentils are small, shiny black when cooked - resembling caviar. They have a mild, earthy flavour and soft texture. They are most commonly found dried in natural food stores, the organic section of some supermarkets or online specialty stores.
