Makes regular green beans so much better. My family loved the flavors and is asking for it again.

I had some left over fish and bought some fresh green beans to go with. OMG! If i could give this 6 stars I would. A few adjustments due to lack of ingredients. Used slivered almonds, didn't have pecans. Will try it next time with pecans. Not a fan of orange, so I used lemon. Used 1/4t. kosher salt, due to the sodium in the mustard and butter. I will be making this again for sure.

These were awesome! I rec'd beans in my food coop basket and had to use them somehow. This recipe has changed my previous attitude of 'green bean hater' to 'hey, get your own. these are mine!'

Very easy to make! This works well with frozen green beans too. The orange and nut flavor is amazing with the beans!
