String beans lend themselves to many variations — cooked, roasted, or steamed; savory, sweet, or sweet and sour. Here I opted for roasted string beans with dried fruit and citrus undertones. Garlic and ginger add warmth and depth of flavor.
Prepare the Roasted String Bean Dish
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit (230 degrees Celsius). Line a baking sheet with Gefen Parchment Paper.
2. Place string beans in a large bowl. Add olive oil, garlic, orange juice, salt, pepper, sugar, and ginger. Toss until well coated. Spread onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. Add dried fruit and continue roasting for 10 minutes, or until fruit is slightly crispy and string beans are tender.
4. Remove from oven. Garnish with lemon and orange zests. Serve hot or warm.
