Ingredients

  • ½

    medium orange

  • 1

    lb thin green beans

  • 2

    medium shallots

  • 1

    tbl evoo

  • 1

    tbl balsamic vinegar

  • ¼

    cup lightly packed fresh basil

  • ¼

    tsp salt

  • tsp pepper

Directions

1. Zest the orange half using a fine grater until you have about 1 tsp of zest, then juice it to yield 3 Tbsp juice. 2. Trim the green beans. Thinly slice the shallots into half-moons to yield 1/2 cup. 3. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet with a cover over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook, stirring, until they begin to brown, about 2 min. 4. Add the green beans to the skillet and cook, stirring, until they just begin to soften about 2 min. Stir in the orange zest, juice, and the vinegar. Cover and cook until the beans are crisp-tender, stirring once or twice, 3 min. 5. While the beans are cooking, slice the basil into ribbons. Remove the green beans from the heat. Season with the salt and pepper, and stir in the basil.
