Deliver Ingredients


  • 1 1/2 Pound green beans, trimmed
  • 2 Teaspoons grated satsuma zest (of about 3 satsumas)
  • 1/2 Cup satsuma juice (of about 3 satsumas)
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon white or red miso
  • 1/2 Teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 Cup toasted pistachios, chopped
  • 3 Tablespoons thinly sliced mint leaves


Steam the beans until tender and bright green, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the zest, juice, miso, and pepper.
