Orange-Scented Green Beans


  • Peel of 1 orange

  • 2 pounds trimmed green beans, available in the produce department at the grocery store

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • Salt

  • 3 tablespoons fresh chives, snipped


Fill a pan with 2 inches of water and bring to a boil. Add the orange peel and beans. Cook for 5-6 minutes – the beans should remain bright green with a snap to them.

Drain the beans and return them to the pan. Remove the orange peel.

Toss the beans with butter, salt and chives, then transfer to a serving dish.
