How to Make Green Beans with Orange & Pistachios
- 1Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the diced white onion and cook for 2-3 minutes until soft and translucent.
- 2Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, approximately 1 minute. Toss in the green beans and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Cook mixture until the green beans begin to soften, about 5-6 minutes.
- 3Pour in the freshly squeezed orange juice and apple cider vinegar. Cook, stirring occasionally for another 6-8 minutes or until the green beans are thoroughly cooked and the sauce is slightly thickened.
- 4Transfer the green beans to a serving platter, garnish with the toasted pistachios (and orange zest if using); serve hot.
