Notice that I did not add salt. You can if you like, but we don't. Unless you use a fresh butchered chicken of your own, even the chickens you buy at the store contain salt. If you use canned veggies, they also contain salt, and your seasonings may also have salt. If you are trying to avoid salt, rinse your bought chicken and rinse off your canned veggies.
In food processor fitted with a blade, chop cauliflower into fine particles.
Saute the onion, celery, carrots, and mushrooms in the butter in a large soup pot. Add curry and cook for 3-4 more minutes.
Add chicken stock and simmer over low-med heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the rest of your ingredients and simmer for 20-25 more minutes. Enjoy!

This soup is made as a large batch, then frozen in individual containers. I love it because it's so versatile and can be served in a wide variety of ways.
Place all ingredients except vegetables and salt, in large crock pot. Pour in enough water to cover the chicken. Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours till chicken is falling apart. Carefully remove chicken and allow to cool. Remove all bones and skin from chicken. Cut meat into bite size pieces and return to crock pot. Add vegetables and cook one more hour. Add sea salt to taste. Cook one more hour.
Once the soup is done, spoon it into individual containers and freeze.
These are only a few suggestions, but there are as many as what your own imagination can come up with.
I make 2 crock pots of this soup, along with one other soup and chili, and they keep me fed all winter and into the spring.
