“Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.” (Genesis 25:34)
Lentils are one of the oldest cultivated crops in the world, and they have been enjoyed for their delicious taste and nutritional value for thousands of years. They are mentioned in the Bible in several places, including the story of Jacob and Esau, in which Esau sells his birthright to Jacob in exchange for a bowl of lentil stew.
So gather your ingredients, follow the recipe, and in no time you’ll have a steaming pot of Jacob’s lentil stew ready to enjoy.
