This velvety Roasted Cauliflower & Goat Cheese Soup is soothing, completely delicious, and unbelievably good for you. It uses a whole head of cauliflower, stalks and all. Roasting enhances the natural sweetness of cruciferous veggies like cauliflower, and aromatics like garlic. It is this sweetness along with the tangy creaminess of the goat cheese that makes this soup so very special. Goat cheese is easier to digest than cow’s milk. If you’re on chemo anything that’s easier on digestion is a gift.
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
2. Toss the cauliflower and garlic cloves with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread onto a baking sheet and bake until nicely golden, about 25-30 minutes, turning halfway through. Peel garlic. Set aside.
3. Heat olive oil in a pot over medium-high heat, add onions and bay leaf and cook until translucent, about 5-8 minutes. Add the roasted cauliflower, garlic and a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring for 3 minutes. Add stock and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
4. Pick out the bay leaves. Using an immersion blender or pouring into a regular blender, blend soup until very smooth. Return to pan and stir in goat cheese over medium heat stirring until the cheese has melted. Taste for seasonings and serve with a sprinkling of paprika.
