Ingredients

  • 1 pound green beans, washed and trimmed
  • 1/2 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1 cup cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup pecans - I cut some of mine in half
  • lemon zest

Instructions

  • Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Add avocado oil and let it get hot, about 30 seconds.
  • Add green beans and sauté for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened. Add cranberries and lemon juice and stir to combine. Sauté for 2-3 minutes until cranberries are soften and slightly broken down. Stir in ginger, cinnamon, and salt and pepper and cook for another minute. Turn off heat and stir in pecan pieces.
  • Top with lemon zest and enjoy!
