Thanksgiving Series: Orange Scented Green Beans

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

I love green bean casserole but this year I wanted to change things a little bit, so instead of going with an traditional dish, I've decided to do a light green bean dish. Even though it's light still packed with flavor and I can guarantee you'll love it too! Take a look:


Recipe adapted from Rachael Ray

Ingredients (8 servings):
2 lbs. green beans, trimmed
Peel of 1 orange
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 white onion, diced
Salt and black pepper

Directions:
Fill a pan with 2 inches water, add the orange peel and bring to a simmer. Add green beans and let cook for about 5-6 minutes, beans should remain bright green with a snap to them. Drain beans. Using the same pan, add the butter and diced onion, sauté onions until translucent. Add beans and toss, season with salt and pepper. Serve hot. Enjoy!
