Slowly add the oil and continue to blend until you reach your desired consistency.

If too thick add a little more oil or water.

 

Hint – this will last well in the fridge for up to 1 week. Make sure it’s tightly sealed in a jar with a layer of oil over the top to prevent spoilage. Otherwise freeze leftovers in ice cube trays ready to add to soup bases or sauces as needed.
