When I include green beans as a side dish to my meals I usually like to have mine steamed and every now and then I might add some butter or pepper as well. Once in a while I like to stir things up by adding different flavoured ingredients, toasted nuts or spices.
By using an oil infusion, you blend the flavours of the ingredients to enhance foods taste. Oil infusions are fun to experiment with by adding different herbs such as rosemary, basil, oregano and so on as well as adding other ingredients like garlic, jalapeño peppers, onions and spices. The chili-orange oil in this recipe really brings a unique twist and some heat to these beans without over shadowing the flavor.
Although an interesting combination, these ingredients marry well together and complement the green beans perfectly. So the next time you’re thinking of having green beans, spice things up and give these a try.
Bon Appétit!


FOOTNOTE: For steaming beans, place beans in a steamer basket and cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
