Directions

1
Defrost Green beans until they easily fall apart. (about 10 min) all microwaves are different.
2
Melt butter in skillet on med. high, add green beans and dried minced onion sautee 3 to 4 min on medium heat.
3
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.
