1 Clove of Garlic, crushed

Pinch of Salt, preferably Pink Himalayan

  1. Put all but agar in blender, blend until very smooth. Add a tiny splash of water if it’s too thick

  2. In pan, heat 100ml water until boiling

  3. Add the agar and whisk on a very low heat until a really thick gel has formed

  4. Combine and whisk until all are combined together
