Yes, you read correctly... pottage.  Not a word that I would have thought would be typed in this little corner of the web, that's for sure!

Our kiddos' junior church teacher asked if I'd make a recipe for pottage to go along with their Bible story in which Jacob gave Esau a bowl of lentil stew (pottage) in exchange for his birthright.  I had my doubts that the kids would eat it.  Well I was surprised when I saw an empty crock pot!  They didn't like it...they loved it!  They also informed me that it was good, but not worth selling their birthrights for it!  *smile*


1 pound bag of lentils
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 tsp. salt
1 Tablespoon onion powder
2 Tablespoons chicken broth powder (I buy it at our local bulk Amish store)
1 teaspoon garlic powder

 Rinse the lentils to remove dirt and/or stones.  Put lentils in a crock pot and cover with 2 inches of water.  Add remaining ingredients, stir a bit, cover and cook for 8 hours.  The recipe I read said to cook it on high for 8 hours, but I cooked it on low for 8 hours and it was fine.  (The crock pot I used cooks fairly high.)

I love the taste of lentils, and like it lentil soup as well, my 10 year old loves lentil is an " acquired " taste some like and some not...I'm going to try the homemade granola recipe, I've tried a few and have not yet found
"the one ", maybe yours is it...

enjoy your week

Interesting recipe. Curious though because it's tied in to a Bible lesson. I can imagine the brothers with the older one begging for the pottage in exchange for his birthright.
