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.
