  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.
