“The cell walls of mushrooms are tough, making it difficult for the digestive system to get to all the nutrients inside them. Mushrooms often contain chemical compounds that can interfere with digestion and nutrient absorption.

Break the cauliflower into small florets and pulse in a food processor for about 20-25 seconds until it’s a rice-like consistency; Don’t over process or it’ll turn to mush. Heat a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat and drizzle with one tablespoon of your olive oil.
Add the mushrooms and stir fry until browned and tender, about 4 minutes. Season with sea salt and pepper and set mushrooms aside. Add the remaining oil to the skillet and cook the garlic until just fragrant, about 1 minute.Stir in the onion, bell pepper, and cauliflower rice, and stir fry for 6 minutes, until it starts to lightly brown. Return the mushrooms into your skillet and drizzle everything with coconut aminos. Cook for additional 2-3 minutes, until everything is well heated through, to your liking.
Garnish with sliced green onions and enjoy! ❤Rachel
