I made this a few days ago and followed the suggestion for adding 6 Tbsp. of water and more oil. That helped the processing and spreadability of this a great deal. I also thought it needed something flavorwise, so I added some cajun seasoning. The cajun seasoning melded the flavors perfectly. This makes a great sandwich with lettuce and tomato. I'll be making it again.
I've made this spread 3 times now! It is a delicious, easy and filling snack. I would however like to add a couple of suggestions to make this recipe easier for those interested...Add an additional 2 tablespoons of olive oil and about 6 tablespoons of water or else you won't be able to process it. Another way to make the garlic taste a little less pungent is to heat the olive oil in a pan until it is warm, take oil off the stove, and then let the cloves soak in the oil for a couple of hours. Your spread will still have a tasty garlicky flavor, but it will be a bit more mild.
