1/8 tsp. each orange and lemon zest 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
Salt and pepper 2 tsp. honey, slightly warmed 1 tsp. chopped fresh sage -or an ample pinch of dried
Preheat oven to 400.
Whisk olive oil, OJ, orange & lemon zest, lemon juice, and salt & pepper to your taste. Toss with carrots and beans until coated and put into a lightly greased baking dish. Cover with foil and bake for 10 minutes. Remove the tinfoil.
Combine the warm honey and sage, pour over the vegetables, and toss gently.
