  • Step 1

    Separate the stems and leaves from the coriander. Place the coriander stems into your Ninja Cup, along with; 60ml cold water, 5 cloves of garlic, black peppercorns, tamari, coconut sugar, and sea salt. Blend until smooth. Place the mushrooms into a large shallow bowl then pour over the marinade and mix well. Set aside until needed

  • Step 2

    Slice the remaining 2 cloves of garlic and and add the coconut oil to a frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add garlic and fry until golden yellow, about 1-2 minutes, then remove using a slotted spoon and set aside

  • Step 3

    Add the carrots to the same pan and fry for 2-3 minutes stirring occasionally. Next, add the mushrooms and marinade and fry for a further 6 to 8 minutes. Add 60ml of water at a time to deglaze the pan and until the desired consistency is reached. Add more water to dilute the flavour if you wish
