How much have you supped!!!!! LOL. Laughing

The answer is LENTIL, you got it WR Cryptic Crossword Clues 13-3-19 3530011831

An explanation. Lady shortly = LIL, going round hospital dept = ENT.


I think a LEGUME is a pea or bean, but a LENTIL is a pulse.

Just to confuse matters!!!! LOL

Pulses are part of the legume family (any plants that grow in pods), but the term “pulse” refers only to the dry edible seed within the pod. Beans, lentils, chickpeas and split peas are the most common types of pulses. Pulses are special because they have distinct health benefits apart from other legumes.
