“This is a side dish of fresh green beans tossed with orange-infused olive oil. It's my favorite way to make green beans. I normally serve it with Italian food, it's tasty and refreshing!”

Original recipe yields 4 servings



  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.

sorry I should have stated I don't use all the olive oil at one recipe. I make the orange olive oil to use again. It is just easier to infuse the olive oil when there it a bit more oil than about one table spoon. So after you infuse the olive oil I would only pour about 1 table spoon on top. Save the rest for another time.



A nice change to ordinary steamed green beans. Easy to make. Next time I'd use more orange zest and a little less oil.



I use Blood Orange olive oil and orange zest for garnish. Best beans ever everyone loves them and wants the recipe
