Fresh Green Beans with Lemon Zest

Catering a meeting tonight, I want a simple vegetable dish. Northwest green beans are in abundance right now. I like them tossed in olive oil in a hot wok and left ever so slightly crisp. The hot oil brings up the color to a vibrant green. Once they are turning color, I pour a little water into the wok and creating a quick steam. A couple more minutes and that is it. Turning them into a bowl, I toss with salt and pepper. I zest a lemon on top, cut it in half and squeeze the juice onto the beans. Simple, quick and summer time refreshing.

I didn't plan on uploading this 'recipe' but a guest said she needed it to make the beans for her daughter. Always happy to share!
