Orange and thyme spiked green beans and the giveaway winner

9 Sep

My produce delivery included a pound of fresh, local green beans. 

Last week I grilled my beans on the BBQ and loved every bite.  With fresh produce, simple preparation of olive oil, sea salt and pepper works well every time. 

Sometimes I do want something a little extra though.  A splash of orange and zest adds a tasty refreshing flavor.  Fresh thyme pairs perfectly with this duo of orange and beans.

Orange and Thyme Spiked Green Beans


1 pound of green beans, cleaned
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 an orange
1 tbsp fresh thyme
pinch of sea salt

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the beans and cook for 5 minutes, tossing around every minute or so. 

Zest 1 tbsp of orange from the rind and juice the remaining orange.  Add the orange juice and cook for another 3 minutes.  Stir in the zest, fresh thyme and sea salt right before serving. 

These beans would go great with herb roasted turkey, individual turkey meatloaf or sweet potato shepard’s pie.

Oh my goodness… I keep my favorite pancake recipe bookmarked so I can quickly pull it up! Surprised I don’t have it memorized by now….


Yum :)

I can’t wait to try those oatmeal buttermilk and berry pancakes.  Send me an email (gethealthywithheather@comcast.net) and I’ll get the CSN info to you. 

There were 7 pancake recipes left from Natalie, Janetha, Jodie, my Aunt Carol (my mom’s recipe that I know),  Emily N, Naomi and Mel.  Over the next few weeks my goal is try to each of those recipes so I’ll be posting  what I thought of each I go along.  I love pancakes so this is going to be fun!
