Orange Scented Green Beans

My original intent was to make these Green Beans with Orange and Hazelnut, but I changed plans and went with an even simpler preparation. It was 70F outside, and about 100F in my kitchen! I boiled about a pound of green beans in salted water for 5 minutes and drained them. Then, I tossed the beans with the juice of one orange and chopped pieces of orange rind, along with a dash of salt and pepper. The orange flavor was subtle, but the green beans were still great. When vegetables are really fresh, you don’t need to do much to enjoy them.

  1. These were good, and smelled like orange! The nice thing about these was that although the orange flavor didn't come through, you didn't need to add any butter.
