Yes, this is an easy one to make, which I do almost every week so I have a batch in the fridge. I usually jazz it up a little though with a sprinkle of cumin, tumeric, paprika.. just a little dash of all or one give it abit more flavour.

Super easy to make -- took less than five minutes to whip up in the food processor. I used my garlic press on the cloves though to ensure it would really be well blended, ie. no chunks.
