What to do with black 'caviar' lentils?

Anyone have a great recipe they can share? I assume they cook up like regular lentils, but what do they pair nicely with? Anything unusual I can do?

  1. the trick with these is to cook them at very gentle heat so they hold their shape. i usually cook them in chicken stock with aromatics. i love them with brightly contrasting foods like rabbit and salmon.
