"Greens beans are one of my favorite vegetables, but I don’t often get creative with them. A little lemon juice and a pat of butter usually do it. But I felt super inspired to create something a bit more out-of-the-box with these Lox Farm beans, yet still simple and delicious. This Blood Orange + Tahini Dressing is a play on the classic preparation of lemon and butter. The combination of blood orange and lemon juice lend a sweet citrus flavor, which pairs perfectly with creamy tahini. In addition to be delicious and playful, this recipe is also filled with the plant based proteins, healthy fats, and complex carbohydrates we need for elevated energy, weight management, glowing skin, immune support, and brain health."- Kate McCabe
Blood Orange + Tahini Dressing
- 4 tbsp fresh squeezed blood orange juice (or any variety of fresh squeezed orange juice)
- 1 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 4 tbsp tahini
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tbsp raw honey

Add all ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine. Add salt and pepper to your taste preference.
Prepare your green beans in any way you choose (I steamed mine), and toss with your dressing. Enjoy as is, or over a bed of greens and citrus.
