Each year when we arrive at this parsha, I try to make the perfect pottage.  This year, I think I found it.  Jacob must have been a great cook, creating a lentil dish so aromatic that Esau would cast off his birthright like a raincoat.  Here is my best try.  Feast your senses on this remarkable red lentil soup, that will take the chill off a cold fall night and fire up your Shabbos table with a simmering serrano pepper.

Start with this comforting lentil soup and the main course of your dinner can be made in ONE pot.
