The first mention of the phenomenal taste of the lentil soup can be found in the Book of Genesis: Esau, son of Isaac, sold his birthright to his brother Jacob for a bowl of lentil soup. Rich, thick, warming, perfectly balanced acid, sweetness and spice, lentil soup gives the very simple joy. Soup can be meatless, if you take vegetable broth.
