Citrus Glazed Green Beans


Green beans are in season this time of year and normally a big side for holidays. I’ve never been a huge fan of the creamy mushroom soup type. I like something that’s a little fancy. This version is a bit fruity, with a slightly Sicilian style, easy to do and definitely will impress a crowd.

Ingredients:
3 pounds green beans
1 tablespoon coconut oil or butter
1/4 Cup + 2 tablespoons sliced almonds
2 tablespoons orange marmalade
1 pinch salt

Start by trimming the ends off the green beans. Next either blanch green beans or steam until they get slightly soft but retain a bright green color. To hold the bright green color always run through an ice bath after you’re done initially heating. A few minutes before you’re ready to serve take butter or coconut oil and melt in large pan. Add Green beans and toss. Next add orange marmalade, salt and a quarter cup of sliced almonds. Continue to gently toss while heating over medium heat for about two minutes. To serve place on a large platter and top with the remaining 2 tablespoons of sliced almonds.
