In a skillet, cook the strips of bacon over medium-low heat. Once browned and crispy, remove from pan and set aside.
Pour the olive oil into the skillet and increase the temperature to medium-high. Cook the garlic, onions, and mushrooms for ~5-7 minutes. Set aside.
In the same skillet bring the heavy cream, white wine vinegar and chicken broth to a boil. Add the cauliflower rice, spinach, parsley, basil, mushrooms, onions, and garlic. Reduce to a simmer and cover for ~7 minutes or until rice is tender.
Remove from heat and stir in the parmesan and crumbled bacon.
Salt and pepper to taste.
