Certain mushrooms grow only in certain regions. These mushroom appear at springtime and they grow on the trees around Televi, Kakheti'- main city. Same mushrooms are not available in the United States. I suggest morels, but this dish will taste only as interesting as the mushrooms you choose. They should be strongly flavored, with firm texture.

1 pound of flavorful mushrooms, such as shiitake or morels
3 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons of minced cilantro
1 tablespoon of minced mint
2 tablespoons of minced scallion
1/4 teaspoon of salt
Freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons of butter

Finely chop the mushrooms. Beat the eggs and combine them with cilantro, mint, scallion, salt and pepper.
In a large skillet melt the butter and cook the mushrooms quickly over high heat. Do not allow them to give off liquid.
Add the egg mixture and stir until they are just cooked through. Serve immediately.
