  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric

  4. Cover with water, add raisins and salt and bring to a boil.
  5. Cook until carrots and sunflower seeds are tender.
  6. Next, transfer to a blender or food processor (do in batches if your blender isn’t big enough to do all of this at once).
