  3. Carefully add the steamed beans to the hot oil and saute for 1-2 minutes or until they start to brown.
  4. Lower the heat to medium, toss in the garlic and saute for another minute. Stir in salt & pepper and clementine zest then squeeze in the juice of half a clementine. Toss to coat.
  5. Remove from heat and transfer to your serving dish.
  6. Top sauteed green beans with pomegranate, clementine segments, and chopped almonds and serve immediately.
