This is a simple and elegant side dish that goes easily with any main dish. I didn't have a picture so this one will have to do for now.

1Defrost Green beans until they easily fall apart. (about 10 min) all microwaves are different.
2Melt butter in skillet on med. high, add green beans and dried minced onion sautee 3 to 4 min on medium heat.
3Add orange zest and almonds. Toss to coat and remove from heat. Add salt and pepper to taste.
