  12. Put mushrooms on a cutting board and dry with paper towels, then chop up fine; set aside.
  13. In a large skillet over medium heat, put 1 Tbsp of the coconut oil and heat until melted and hot.
  14. Add the chopped mushrooms and cook until mushrooms brown slightly and liquid evaporates.
  15. Transfer mushrooms to crockpot.
  16. In same skillet, add the remaining 3 Tbsp coconut oil and heat over medium heat, then add onions and cook until just softened.

  45. Serves 6.
