Don't eat them raw:
"They are among a number of foods (including celery, peanuts, peanut products, and salted, pickled, or smoked foods) that contain natural carcinogens. Just how dangerous these natural toxins are is unknown, but we do know that they are not present in other kinds of mushrooms that offer great health benefits. If you do eat these varieties, never eat them raw and cook them thoroughly over high heat; that will break down some of the toxins."

Hmm, that's a tough one! I can think of all sorts of things to do with them cooked, but raw is more difficult. I just typed "raw mushroom recipes" into youtube and a whole bunch of raw mushroom recipe videos popped up. I would give that a try. Good luck on your quest!

As far as raw, I love them on salads, but it doesn't sound like that's what you're looking for.
Cooked - egg white scramble all the way!
