  • 1 ½ cups whole baby portobello mushrooms (or one 6 oz package)
  • ½ batch of Ranch Mashed Cauliflower
  • 4 cups fresh greens (I love using arugula)
  • 6-8 slices of bacon
  • 3 tbsp coconut Aminos (you can also swap for 3 tbsp bone broth or 1 ½ tbsp balsamic-vinegar)
  • coarse sea salt (for finishing)
  • 2 tbsp cooking-oil (I suggest reserving some grease from the bacon, but you can also use ghee, coconut oil, or avocado oil)
  • 1 tbsp olive-oil
  • sea-salt to taste


For the Mushrooms

  • Heat oil in a saute-pan over moderate heat. Then slice mushrooms in half and put in to saute-pan. Cook slowly over low-heat for the flavors to fully develop.
  • If the mushrooms are cooked, then pour at the coconut-aminos to deglaze the pan and then develop a caramelization on the outside of mushrooms.
  • Remove from heat and sprinkle with a little bit of rough sea-salt while the glaze is still wet.

For the Bacon

  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Then lay the bacon onto a rimmed, parchment lined baking-sheet. Cook till crisp for 12-15minutes.
  • Remove bacon from cooking-sheet and put aside to cool on a paper-towel. This may consume additional grease. Reserve the grease left on the baking-sheet & store in an airtight jar in the refrigerator to use for cooking.
  • After bacon has chilled, rough-chop and keep store till use.


  • Split ingredients combined with ½ a batch of Ranch Mashed Cauliflower among 2-bowls then drizzle olive-oil or avocado-oil. Sprinkle with coarse sea-salt.
  • These ingredients may be prepped the day before and reheated for a fast breakfast bowl or eaten right from the refrigerator.
