We found a good recipe in the South Beach Diet cookbook.

It’s for Orange-Ginger Green Beans (page 145):

1 lb green beans
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup chopped shallots
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel

Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the beans, cover, and simmer for 5 minutes or until tender. Drain and remove to a bowl. Melt the butter in the same pan over low heat. Add the shallots and ginger and saute for 5 minutes, or until the shallots are tender. Add the beans and orange peel and toss to combine.

These were so good with the Citrus Glazed Chicken!
