#WeeklyDish (No. 28): Roasted Cauliflower at BIRD Modern Provisions & Bar

Recently-opened BIRD Modern Provisions & Bar can obviously work magic with poultry, but there’s one unique cauliflower dish worth a trip: the Roasted Cauliflower.

A misunderstood vegetable, cauliflower has been trending as a low-carb replacement for mashed potatoes and rice, but the results just aren’t the same as the carb-loaded version.

Nutty, slightly charred cauliflower sits on a bed of eggplant nage and black garlic oil with raisin kale carrot slaw on top.

The cauliflower and black garlic oil have a pleasant slight bitterness with savory depth complemented by the meaty-tasting eggplant nage. The slaw adds layers of texture with a touch of sweetness form golden raisins.

BIRD Modern Provisions & Bar is located at 7109 N. Oracle Rd. and open daily from 4 p.m. – 10 p.m. For more information, call (520) 441-9509 or visit birdmodern.com. Keep up with BIRD Southern Table & Bar on Facebook.
