Quick ideas for cooking with fresh mushrooms

Here are some quick ideas for fresh mushrooms. To bake them with a crumb coating, dip medium-sized fresh mushroooms in beaten egg, then coat with seasoned bread crumbs and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake until tender and crisp, 15 to 20 minutes at 350 degrees F.

For a light mushroom soup, combine in a saucepan and bring to a boil beef bouillon cubes, water, and soy sauce. Add thinly sliced carrots, sliced mushrooms and torn fresh spinach leaves. Simmer a few minutes; then stir in sliced scallions.

For a quick chicken dish, saute sliced fresh mushrooms and minced garlic in a little butter in a skillet. Add halved, boned and skinned chicken breasts, lemon juice, tarragon and black pepper and cook about 10 minutes. Stir in chopped fresh tomatoes the last 5 minutes.
