    I'm doing a lot of what my mum used to call, "padding out" adding things like lentils and beans to meals.

    make the pulses/beans the star - a chickpea curry (Chana Masala) is a wondrous thing. Make a Dal with lentils

    A tin of anchovies emptied into a pan with their oil and slowly cooked to break them up.
    Add a crushed clove of garlic.
    Cook for a minute or two.
    Add a drained tin of cannellini beans.
    Heat through stirring.
    Add a tablespoon of water.

    This makes an amazing spread to put on hot buttered toast or as a base to put under a piece of fish of your choice.

    My mum always added water to wine; she was a catholic.

    Just watered down the orange juice (2/3 water, 1/3 juice), and it still tastes great.

    This is what the Romans used apparently - a natural sponge on a stick. I'm not sure what else they did with it, given their reputation...

    Yes, but is there transubstantiation? That could be the key to everything.
