Ginger Garlic Green Beans with Orange Zest


These green beans are so full of flavor and delicious, I ate the entire pound myself in two days! Half for dinner and half for breakfast the next day.


Ginger Garlic Green Beans with Orange Zest

1 lb of Fresh Green Beans

1 teaspoon of Finely Grated (with a nutmeg grater) Fresh Ginger

1/2 Jalapeno, seeds and membrane removed

2 teaspoons of Orange Zest

2 Cloves of Garlic, minced

Avocado Oil

Sea Salt

Trim ends off of the green beans. Heat about 1 1/2 Tablespoons of avocado oil in a medium skillet on medium-low heat. (The beans will take a while to get to the aldente stage, you don’t want to cook them or the garlic too quickly.) Add the beans, ginger, jalapeno, orange zest, and garlic. Toss frequently while sauteing until aldente, about 15-20 minutes. Season generously with sea salt.
