  1. With a spiralizer or similar vegetable noodle maker, make long, thin noodles from the plantains. Place the plantain noodles in the food processor and process until the size of rice. Alternatively, you can chop the noodles into rice by hand.

  3. Season the rice with garlic, onion, salt and pepper.

  5. While the beef cooks, stir the coconut aminos and honey into the beef fried rice.
  6. Remove from the heat, and stir in the green onion and apple cider vinegar.
  7. Enjoy!
