Get Prepped

a) Halve, peel and thinly slice the shallot. Trim the green beans.

b) Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Zest half the orange. TIP: Zest more if you like things citrusy.

c) Heat a medium frying pan on medium heat (no oil). Once hot, add the pine nuts and dry-fry, stirring regularly, until lightly toasted, 2-3 mins. TIP: Watch them like a hawk as they can burn easily.

d) Once toasted, set aside the pine nuts in a small bowl and keep the pan for the next step.

Bring on the Beans

a) Return the frying pan to medium-high heat and add a drizzle of oil. Once hot, add the shallot and cook until softened slightly, 1-2 mins.

b) Add the green beans to the pan and stir-fry until starting to char, 2-3 mins.

c) Stir in the garlic, then turn the heat down to medium and cook for 1 min. Add a splash of water and immediately cover with a lid or some foil.

d) Cook until the green beans are tender, 4-5 mins.

Finish and Serve

a) Once the veg has softened, stir in the orange zest and unsalted butter until the butter has melted and is slightly thickened, 1-2 mins. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

b) Transfer the green beans to a serving dish. Sprinkle over the toasted pine nuts to finish.
