1/2 Tbsp
dried minced onions
salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbsp
orange zest
1/2 c
almonds, slivered
1 pkg
wild rice, cooked per directions

Directions Step-By-Step

Defrost Green beans until they easily fall apart. (about 10 min) all microwaves are different.
Melt butter in skillet on med. high, add green beans and dried minced onion sautee 3 to 4 min on medium heat.
Add orange zest and almonds. Toss to coat and remove from heat. Add salt and pepper to taste.
* I do not like my green beans "squishy" I like them fairly crisp. You may adjust cook time to suit your preferences.
Serve over wild rice and sprinkle top with a few more almonds.
