The orange juice adds a lovely mellow flavour to the beans. I had pure orange juice but no orange for the zest.Will be sure to add it next time. This recipe will be made again.

Absolutely delicious. Such an easy way to cook green beans, too. I love that I didn't even need to drain them. The sauce is so yummy. Don't skip browning the almonds - it really does add flavor! Thank you!
