Citrusy Green Beans


  • 3 pounds green beans, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Finely grated zest of 1 orange
  • Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter or dairy-free butter substitute
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the beans and cook until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Drain well.

Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the orange and lemon zests and garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the orange juice and cook until the juice reduces by half and starts to thicken, 3 – 4 minutes. Add the beans and butter and toss well until the beans are heated through and coated. Season with salt and pepper. Serve.
