Heat a drizzle of cold pressed extra virgin olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan or spray lightly with cooking spray.
Add the cauli rice to the pan and sauté until warmed through and slightly tender.
Pour in the bright green herby mixture and cook until fragrant and the cauli rice is tender.

In a separate non-stick frying pan heat a drizzle of cold pressed extra virgin olive oil or spray lightly with cooking spray.
Cook the mushrooms until they release all of their liquid and turn golden brown.
