A fabulous Thanksgiving or Christmas side dish.
One of my very favorite side dishes for Thanksgiving. My family loves it. It's quick and easy and I guarantee you'll get rave reviews. I cut this recipe out of a Gourmet magazine many years ago.
Green beans with ginger
2 pounds haricots verts or other green beans, trimmed
3-inch-long piece fresh ginger
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
Finely grated lemon zest from 1/2 lemon
Fill a large bowl with cold water and ice. Set aside.
Bring an 8-quart pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the beans, uncovered, until just tender, about 5 to 9 minutes. Drain the beans in a colander, then transfer to the ice water to cool and stop the cooking. Drain the beans again and pat dry.
Peel the ginger and cut into thin matchsticks.
In a 12-inch nonstick skillet over moderate heat, heat the butter until melted and the foam subsides. Add the ginger and cook, stirring, until golden, about 3 minutes.
Add the beans and cook, stirring, until just heated through, about 2 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and add zest and 1/2 teaspoon salt, tossing to combine.
