Easy Green Beans with Caramelized Onions
1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup sliced brown onion (they have a lot of sweetness once cooked), thinly sliced
1 12-oz package ready-to-steam fresh green beans
1 tbsp orange juice
salt, to taste
1. Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
2. Add the onions, season with a pinch of salt, and toss them in the oil. Start the green beans in the microwave according to package directions.
3. When the onions start to become translucent, pour in the orange juice and keep sauteeing until they become very soft and light brown. If the beans finish cooking before the onions are brown, set them aside.
4. Toss the green beans into the caramelized onions and serve immediately.
