Esau's Pottage is one of the most famous recipes in history. Various simmered red lentil dishes are known as Esau's Pottage in Biblical lands (Bible verses below).
Genesis 25:27-34 World English Bible
25:27 The boys grew. Esau was a skillful hunter, a man of the field. Jacob was a quiet man, living in tents. 25:28 Now Isaac loved Esau, because he ate his venison. Rebekah loved Jacob. 25:29 Jacob boiled stew. Esau came in from the field, and he was famished. 25:30 Esau said to Jacob, “Please feed me with that same red stew, for I am famished.” Therefore his name was called Edom.
25:31 Jacob said, “First, sell me your birthright.”
25:32 Esau said, “Behold, I am about to die. What good is the birthright to me?”
25:33 Jacob said, “Swear to me first.”
He swore to him. He sold his birthright to Jacob. 25:34 Jacob gave Esau bread and stew of lentils. He ate and drank, rose up, and went his way. So Esau despised his birthright.
