Lentil Soup

Is a pot of lentil soup a good trade for the birthright?  Yaakov was not impressed when his brother Eisav demanded the soup he had just cooked for their father Yitzchak, but he realized it was a good opportunity to ask Eisav to switch family positions with him.  You see, it was the firstborn in each family that would get to serve in the Bait Hamikdash.
