When I prep this on meal prep Sunday, I cut one little corner to make this a less than 20 minute ordeal.

I buy cauliflower already riced. But, have no fear, you can pull out your food processor and make cauliflower rice from a whole head too. This is how.

I also choose to use shitake mushrooms in my meal prep bowls, but feel free to swap out for which ever kind of mushrooms you prefer.
