  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Toss beans with olive oil in a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spread beans in a single layer. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes or until beans are blistered and caramelized in spots and almost tender.

  • Sprinkle hot beans with parsley and garlic. Top with pistachios and orange peel shreds and let stand at least 5 minutes before serving warm or at room temperature.


Store unwashed green beans in a resealable bag. Refrigerate up to a week.
