What is liquid aminos?
Liquid aminos are a cooking seasonings that are used as an alternative to soy sauce. They look and taste similar. They are most often made by fermenting coconut sap with salt and water with an acidic solution to break them down into free amino acids. They add a savory, salty flavor to meals and are naturally vegan and gluten-free. Coconut Aminos are a great, healthy and soy-free version of soy sauce. Find more info on Liquid Aminos <HERE>

How to make our Asparagus and Mushroom Stir Fry:
First, dice all vegetables so they are ready to be cooked. Next, place 2/3 cups of water, 1 tablespoon of ground ginger, 1 tablespoon of sriracha, and 4 tablespoons of liquid aminos in a small bowl and mix. Set aside.
In a large skillet, cook ground chicken on medium-high heat. Once thoroughly cooked, about 8 minutes, slowly pour in the bag of thawed riced cauliflower. Stir until slightly heated through and completely combined, about 3 minutes. Empty the cauliflower chicken mixture into a bowl and return skillet to heat.
Add the diced asparagus, mushrooms, and green onions to the original skillet and stir. Add the ginger mixture to the skillet, mix, and cook until the veggies are crisp, about 5 minutes.
While still on medium-high heat, add the chicken mixture back and heat for an additional 3 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
~ Use a large skillet! It will make cooking and mixing so much easier!
~ You can easily change out the ground chicken for ground anything: turkey, pork, or beef!
~ If you don’t have liquid aminos, just use soy sauce! It will still taste great!
