Green beans with dried apricots and almonds

Green beans are a staple in most homes because they're so affordable and versatile. But instead of just steaming them, try this unique recipe.
• 1 lb green beans, trimmed and cut in half
• 2 tsp olive oil
• 1/2 tsp finely chopped garlic
• 1/2 tsp finely chopped ginger
• 1/4 cup finely chopped dried apricots
• 3 Tbsp toasted slivered almonds
• 1 tsp orange zest
1. Steam or boil the green beans for 2 minutes or until bright green but still crisp. Drain well and place in a large skillet over medium heat.
2. Add the olive oil, garlic and ginger, and sauté over medium heat for 1 minute. Add the apricots, almonds and orange zest. Toss well and serve.
