Traditional First Century Meal – A meal of Biblical proportions

Taste the soup that tempted Esau to give up his inheritance to Jacob. Delicious Lentil stew adds protein to a meal of salads, bread and dips. The traditional main meal of the day was served at noon or early afternoon when workers came for a break, hungry like Esau.

This meal includes: fresh fire-baked flat bread, lentil soup, Za’atar dip (ground hyssop, sesame seeds, and olive oil), Hummus dip (ground chickpeas with Tahini), Labaneh dip (yogurt and ground wheat), olives, salad, apple slices with date spread, and water.
