Melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat. Combine the celery, onion, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl. Cook for 7-10 minutes, or until softened.
Chicken should be cut into bite-sized pieces. Cook, stirring regularly, for 5 minutes.
Reduce the heat to medium-low and fill the saucepan halfway with chicken stock. Cover and cook for 15 minutes on low heat.
Add the cauliflower and the leftover chicken stock to a second pot. Bring to a boil over high heat, then lower to a low heat setting. To soften the cauliflower, cover and cook for approximately 5 minutes. Blend with an immersion blender or a hand mixer until smooth once softened.
Combine the chicken mixture with the cauliflower broth that has been pureed (creating a thicker base for the stew). Stir together the bell pepper and zucchini, which have been cut into 1/4 inch (0.5cm) pieces. Allow 30 minutes for it to simmer.
Serve the soup in dishes with fresh parsley on top. To taste, season with salt and pepper.
