Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Heat up a tbsp olive oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Fry the sliced mushrooms, when they have lost their water, add the garlic, cook for one more minute and pour in the soy sauce.

Set aside on a plate and re-use the same pan to cook the scrambled eggs.

Heat up a tbsp of olive oil, and pour the eggs in, stirring constantly with a spatula until it gets together. Don’t over cook it. Set aside.

On half of a phyllo sheet, brush some melted butter, fold the other part on top of it. Brush with melted butter, and cover with the second phyllo sheet. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with grated Parmesan. Fold the other part of the phyllo pastry on top.
