Crimini Crostinis

1 french baguette (sliced in 1/2 inch width rounds)

4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 package of crimini mushrooms (rinsed with the stems removed)

2 cloves garlic (minced)

Chevre (goat cheese)

3 green onions

1 tbsp soy sauce

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a baking sheet lightly with a tablespoon of olive oil. Arrange baguette slices in rows on the baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. Set aside. Chop the mushrooms. Add 1 tablespoon of oil to a large saute pan; medium high temperature. When the oil is hot, add the garlic and mushrooms. Saute evenly, stirring often for approximately 5 minutes. Mushrooms will brown and shrink in size. Distribute the soy sauce evenly over the mushrooms; mix well. Remove from heat and set aside. Generously spoon chevre on the bread slices and spread. Spoon mushroom mixture on to the baguette slices. Bake for 6 minutes and remove from oven. Chop green onions and sprinkle atop the crostinis. Enjoy

Serves 7.
