Today I was discussing, with a group, which foods are “filling” versus “non-filling” and the food that came up the most in the “filling” list was lentil soup.

I was at an antique book fair a few years back and found a lovely old “Good Housekeeping Cookery Compendium” (1957 edition) which I just had to buy. It sits on my recipe book shelf with pride and has some classic recipes which I use all the time.

We usually try to have something hearty, warm and nutritious for them to eat before they start gathering all the sweets and treats they are given by generous neighbours. This “white witch’s” potion is jam packed with good ingredients and can be made in a large cauldron, ready to serve before any serious scaring is done. But dont forget the garlic…
