New Twist for Green Bean Casserole

We love this recipe from Cooking Light. This is the perfect counterpoint to balance the flavors of Thanksgiving which are rich and savory. Green beans are a common side dish for the holidays but we typically see the tired old mushroom soup green bean casserole. The citrus brightens the flavor of the beans and helps to cut through the rich flavors of our traditional Thanksgiving offerings.

Citrus Green Beans with Pine Nuts
 
Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 cup)
 
Ingredients:
 
1 pound green beans, trimmed
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
3/4 cup sliced shallots (about 2 large)
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1 tablespoon pine nuts, toasted
 
Preparation:
 
Cook green beans in boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold running water. Drain well.
 
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add shallots; sauté 2 minutes or until tender. Add green beans; stir well. Add rind, juice, pepper, and salt; sauté 2 minutes. Spoon onto a platter; sprinkle with nuts.
