I blended the mixture after boiling (but left it a little chunky), left out the oil and used the tiniest bit of salt to finish on top, also added toasted whole wheat bread bits for croutons. I remember now that I don't like the taste of cooked carrots so the "croutons" helped for me. I could learn to like cooked carrots with this recipe though. I couldn't taste the raisins, I might add more next time.

Wonderful, light soup. Add more raisins and eat it all up the first day if you want more sweetness; leave some for the next day to enjoy melded flavors and even more tender sunflower seeds.
