Don't worry about "preserving nutrients" in beans. You can't even get at those nutrients until the beans are thoroughly cooked.

I use one of my PC's (the six qt) every single day to steam a big pot of veggies. I throw in a head of cauliflower or a big bunch of broccoli, followed by 1/2 pound baby carrots, about four zucchini, and 1/2 pound chopped mushrooms. This is served with whatever else we're eating - beans, mashed potatoes, rice, etc. The veggies cook so fast, you really need to watch the pot. All I do is bring the pot to pressure (first ring), and then take it off the stove. Veggies are cooked to perfection. I also save the juice on the bottom.

I use the trivet for steaming, and one cup water. Could NOT be easier. This is totally my favorite way to cook veggies. It's quick, easy, and the veggies are delicious.
