I find that side dishes do not have to be complicated. In fact, quite often, as a counterbalance to a more intricate recipe, something simple is better. One star in a meal is enough. That is why, I like this recipe. You could choose another vegetable if you would like. I can see this with zucchini, peas, cauliflower, broccoli or even a sweet potato or carrots. Let your imagination and cravings make the decision.Green Beans in Orange Sauce Ingredients:
8 ounces of frozen green beans
1 tablespoon olive oil 1-1/2 teaspoons cider vinegar 1 tablespoon orange juice (next time, I would use, orange zest and the juice of the entire orange)
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning 1/4 teaspoon onion powder 1/8 teaspoon black pepper Method:
Place beans in a medium bowl and cook in microwave on high for two minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the oil, vinegar,orange juice and seasonings until blended. Heat in microwave for 1 minute until warm.
Pour dressing over beans in a serving bowl and enjoy.
