Ingredients

  • 2 lbs green beans trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup vegetable stock
  • 2 tablespoons frozen concentrated orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
Gremolada:
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 teaspoons grated orange rind
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary

Method

In large pot of boiling salted water, cook beans until tender-crisp, about 4 minutes; drain. (Make-ahead: Chill in ice water; drain and pat dry. Wrap in paper towels; refrigerate in airtight container for up to 24 hours.)

Gremolada: Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix garlic, parsley, orange rind and rosemary. In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; fry all but 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the gremolada for 30 seconds.

Add stock, orange juice, vinegar, salt and pepper; bring to boil. Add beans; cook over medium-high heat, tossing to coat, until liquid is reduced to glaze, about 5 minutes. Serve sprinkled with remaining gremolada.
