Preparing the ingredients is easy. You will need: half cup of olive oil, four cloves of garlic, one teaspoon of dried thyme, one teaspoon of dried oregano, one teaspoon of dried Rosemary, and one cup of lemon juice. Apart from those, you will also need: yogurt, fresh vegetables (sweet potatoes, red bell pepper, cucumber, and tomato), and raw eggs.
