Citrus Green Beans with Cranberries and Almonds

These green beans with cranberries and almonds and hints of citrus make the perfect side dish that look and taste like something you’d get at a restaurant.


– Beans – Almonds – Olive oil – Garlic – Orange juice

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add one tablespoon of salt to the boiling water, then add the beans. Cook until just tender, about 3-4 minutes.

Prepare an ice bath in a large bowl. Transfer the beans to the ice water. Once the beans have cooled, remove from the water using tongs or a slotted spoon.

Meanwhile, toast the almonds in a large saute pan or skillet over medium heat, tossing occasionally for about 4-6 minutes or until golden brown. Set aside.

Heat large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil and garlic and cook until beginning to turn golden brown. Add the blanched green beans and freshly squeezed orange juice to the pan and toss until heated through, about 2-3 minutes.

Remove from heat. Add orange zest, dried cranberries, salt, pepper and toasted sliced almonds to the bean mixture and toss to combine.
