Serves 4 (serving size: 3 oz. beans)

You can turn any ordinary side of green beans into an extraordinary accompaniment with the help of lemon.

How to Make It

Microwave green beans according to package directions for 3 minutes. Sauté beans, lemon zest, salt, and pepper in hot olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high until beans are hot and cooked tender-crisp, 2 to 3 minutes. Squeeze lemon half over beans, and serve immediately.
