The Unrivaled Practical Guide for Asian Cooking

Is it better to boil a vegetable covered or uncovered?

Whether or not you use a cover depends on your priorities. When you cover a pot, you reduce the number of nutrients that dissipate into the air. A covered pot also cooks at a higher temperature than a lidless one, so the vegetable cooks more quickly, and nutrients have less time to leach out of the food. Without a lid, the vegetables better retain their vivid green.
