I didn't have any celery or carrots, but this was still great! Very thick and filling. Tumeric and cumin are probably two of my favourite spices.
This had a wonderful flavor (I did use fresh instead of canned tomatoes and subbed veggie stock for the chicken). Unfortunately though, this lost a lot of its appeal, visually and texturally, after I pureed. I will make this again, but will not puree.
