Mushroom Cauliflower “Rice” Skillet Primavera Kitchen Recipe

If you read Primavera Kitchen often, you know that I’m all about one-pan/skillet recipes. I have lots of these types of recipes on my blog and the most popular recipes are Ground Turkey Sweet Potato Skillet, Asparagus Sweet Potato Chicken Skillet, Ground Beef Zucchini Sweet Potato Skillet, and Shrimp Vegetable Skillet. Why do I love skillet recipes? Well, the answer is so simple: it’s easy and quick to make and clean up is a breeze. For a busy mom like me, these three points are very important when I’m cooking.

I also love the fact that you can always sneak some vegetable in these skillet recipes. Don’t you agree? I love adding some asparagus, sweet potato, broccoli, green beans, and, of course, cauliflower. This one is great because it’s so versatile and goes well with everything. Cauliflower rice is my thing at the moment.


At my local grocery store, I now can find cauliflower rice that’s ready to cook. It’s so convenient and cuts my time in half when I’m cooking with cauliflower. However, I know that it’s not very easy to find cauliflower rice everywhere. So, on the instructions below I explained how to make your own cauliflower rice. And if you love cauliflower like me, I have lots of cauliflower recipes here.

This mushroom cauliflower “rice” recipe include basically ingredients you probably already have on hands such as:

These are all simple ingredients that the whole family will enjoy and more importantly these are all great veggies for your body.

You can serve this mushroom cauliflower “rice” recipe with:

I have to say that this recipe is delicious on its own. So if you are vegetarian or vegan this is a delicious recipe for dinner. But, if you don’t follow a vegetarianor vegandiet/lifestyle, you can pair this dish with some delicious salmonchicken, or even boiled eggs.

I also can’t forget to mention this recipe is paleoWhole30low-carb! Mm… It’s so good! Hope you enjoy it.

Should I use coconut aminos instead of soy sauce to make this mushroom cauliflower “rice” recipe?  

If you are on Whole30 or if you follow gluten-free and paleo diets you should use coconut amino to make this recipe since soy sauce contains gluten and it’s not allowed on Whole30. I highly recommend this one from Coconut Secret because it’s gluten-free, organic and has 70% less sodium than soy sauce. It’s also vegan and Non-GMO. They’re affordable, delicious and last a lot. You can get yours on Amazon easily here or at any natural/organic store.
