Flavorful Green Beans

You and your body will love this recipe as green beans are nutritious and delicious!

Green beans are chock-full of nutrients as they provide an extensive list of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants!  They are an excellent source of vitamin K and provide a good source of vitamin C, folate, vitamin B2, vitamin B1, manganese, copper, chromium, magnesium, and potassium.   They also provide a source of Vitamin A in the form of carotenoids to include lutein, beta-carotene, violaxanthin, and neoxanthin.  The only reason we don’t see these carotenoids is because of the concentrated chlorophyll content of green beans and the incredible shades of green that they provide.

Ingredients:

GREEN_BEANS1lb green beans trimmed
1 large shallot thinly sliced
1 large clove of garlic minced
2 Tbs organic olive oil
1 T of orange zest
Juice of 1 orange
1/4 C organic low sodium chicken broth
Himalayan salt and pepper to taste
1 T Minced parsley

Instructions:

Steam green beans until you can pierce with a fork but still green.
In a skillet sauté shallot and garlic in olive oil until soft but not browned. (About 2 minutes.)
Add green beans and sauté another 3 minutes on medium heat.
Stir in orange juice, zest and chicken broth.  Cover and simmer for another 3 min.
With a slotted spoon remove beans from liquid and sprinkle with parsley.

Serves 4-5
