5. Add the cooked onions and garlic, soaked sunflower seeds and the steamed vegetables to a high-speed blender along with the remaining ingredients and blend until completely smooth. Add additional vegetable broth or water if too thick or corn-starch if too thin, and blend again until smooth. Adjust seasonings to taste.⁠
