The Bible does not say what the recipe was brewed red pottage for which Esau gave up his birthright, but it seems to me that it was lentil soup and was extremely tasty. The soup that I offer you, is brewed based on traditional festive soup "Linsensupp e". Of course, the presence of fat and smoked reduce its its dietary qualities, it but it's festive food, cook it every day, Christmas, New year. And that means that the soup is very tasty, rich, velvety and soulful. I recommend highly!
