HFG tip

Faye says: "This recipe for hummus is a family favourite. I have used it for so long I have no idea where it originated as I scribbled the original recipe out from somewhere. Over the years I have changed it a bit; the original used more oil and sesame seeds but I found sesame oil gave a better result. Occasionally I use lime juice instead of the lemon juice, but it is always popular with our family whichever way I vary it. It's also delicious if avocado oil infused with lime is used instead of olive oil. Personally, it always seems better when NZ oranges are available, maybe I am just prejudiced!"

The hummus freezes well.
