I made your recipe as written, and had these problems. First, I used a blender not a food processor, so it took longer than 5 minutes to get the desired smoothness. It also took more water. I used my teapot water rather than what was in the can because I didn't want the extra salt. If I only used a tablespoon of liquid I would have burnt out my blender motor. It ended up being more like a half cup of water to get it loose enough to blend. I would rather not be told whether or not oil is healthy for me, should be personal choice, so I added olive oil to mine. It made a looser paste than probably intended, but that's OK. What I appreciated about this recipe is not having to buy a special ingredient I wouldn't otherwise use (tahini), and I don't like the taste of sesame anyway. Next time I would only use two cloves - three raw cloves is overpowering even for a garlic lover. I think I'll play with the seasonings, too. Otherwise I think it's a solid base. I eat my dips with a spoon - saves on carbs for me!
