Ingredients
  • Salt
  • 1 pound fresh green beans, snipped and cleaned
  • 1 teaspoon grapeseed oil
  • 1/4 cup julienned shallots
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • 1/3 cup fresh orange juice, plus 1 teaspoon fresh orange zest
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped
Directions
  • Fill a large saucepan with 1 gallon water. Season with salt and bring to a boil over high heat. Set a large bowl filled with ice water on the counter.

  • Add the green beans to the boiling water and cook until very al dente and still bright green, 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Drain the green beans and transfer them to the ice water to stop the cooking process.

  • Allow the beans to cool for 1 minute, then drain again and set aside.

  • Heat a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the grapeseed oil and the shallots and cook for 30 seconds, then add the green beans, almonds, orange juice and mustard.

  • Continue to cook until the beans are warmed through but still bright green and slightly al dente, 3 to 4 minutes. Sprinkle with the orange zest and parsley and serve right away.
