Keeping lunch time interesting and varied in hot weather is a little bit of a challenge, so I thought I would share one of this weeks lunches that was successful.



Simple enough for my daughter to help make, and therefore try, this sesame and white bean ‘hummus’ of sorts was quick, delicious and made for a nice change to the usual chickpea version.
