  1. Place green beans in a steamer basket over 1 inch of boiling water and cover. Cook until the beans are tender but still firm, 2 to 4 minutes. Drain, and keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, stir together olive oil and 1 tablespoon orange zest strips in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Cook and stir until the olive oil has been infused with the flavor of the orange zest, about 2 minutes. Discard zest strips.
  3. Toss drained green beans with flavored olive oil and kosher salt over medium heat until the beans are hot and coated with oil. Place onto a serving dish and sprinkle with remaining 1 teaspoon grated orange zest to garnish.

Never though orange could go well with green beans before

I was surprised how flavorful and good-looking this dish was. I used about 3 1/2 teaspoons olive oil, and this seemed to be just right.

I used frozen haricot vert.. this was quite tasty. I also added cracked pepper

No changes and used all the infused oil as I made a big bowl. It was wonderful and certainly will make it again. Company was most impressed. I never made infused oil before and not hard. Can...

A simple whole food side dish. Elegant, and rustic all at once. Yummy.

I tried this first with asparagus, and later with green beans as I had a lot of oil left over. The oil had a subtle orange smell, but the flavor really didn't come through on the veggies. You de...
