Broccoli and Straw Mushroom Stir-Fry with Shrimp

This Broccoli and Straw Mushroom Stir-Fry with Shrimp is loaded with broccoli, a longtime favorite vegetable of parents and nutritionists everywhere. Parents know that it's loaded with vitamins and minerals, and scientists have recently discovered that it's a source of powerful phytochemicals, which seem to bolster the body's defenses against cancer. Stir-frying is perfect for broccoli because this quick-cooking method discourages the kind of overcooking that can bring out a bitter taste. By making sure to cook the broccoli florets until they are just tender, you'll bring out the best in this light, flavorful stir-fry. Canned straw mushrooms, a handy thing to have in the cupboard, can be found in the Asian section of most supermarkets.
