In a large frying pot, sauté the onion in olive oil with cumin and coriander. Then briefly brown the garlic. Add the lentils and clear soup. Stir well and allow to bubble up. Turn down heat and lightly simmer 25 to 35 min until lentils are tender. Five to ten min before serving, add spinach to soup. Season with salt to taste.

Esau’s lentil dish has gone down in history and to date, various stews with red lentils are known as “Esau’s Lentil Dish” in the lentils of the Bible.

Esau, like his father, was all too happy to be seduced by the fragrance of a well-prepared meal. As a result, the reckless Esau became the victim of an intrigue by his brother and mother. (1.

Genesis 25 and 27)
