The soup as listed is pretty good, but it can be excellent with some changes. I doubled all the veggies (tripling the garlic) and used a bit more chicken (2lb raw). I cooked the chicken in a crockpot with the tomatoes, a little salt and pepper, 1/2 tsp each granulated garlic, turmeric, and cumin, and 1/2 tbsp each chili powder and dried parsley; the blend spent 5 hours on low, then I shredded the chicken. I flash sauteed the onions, garlic and celery in 1/2 tbsp of olive oil and added the veggies, stock and chicken/tomato/spice mixture. I brought the pot to a boil, reduced the heat to medium, simmered for about 5 minutes, then added the peanut butter and fresh parsley. I let it simmer for another 15 minutes or so, leaving the lid on because the additional veg/chicken meant that I had to conserve as much liquid as possible. It was thick like a stew, and very flavorful. In terms of the appearance, the added spices gave the broth some very pretty red and orange notes. I'm giving the recipe only 4 stars as written, but I think it's worthy of 5 stars with my changes.
