(And, surprisingly, after eating it for 5 years no one is tired of it yet.)
If you have kids eating this too you can omit the crushed red pepper, and if you are out of thyme; oregano or an Italian herbs blend works great too.

o 2 garlic cloves or ½ tablespoon garlic powder
o ¼ cup lemon juice
o 1 teaspoon dried thyme
o ¼ teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes (optional)
o Coarse salt and ground pepper
