easy to make mussel recipes



Made dinner at 9 tonight and wanted something quick! Ran for the mussels in a white wine sauce with fresh tomatoes. Took all of ten minutes from pan to plate. How is that for a quick and easy to make italian mussels recipe? Added a green salad and whole grain garlic bread to soak up the sauce, (best part) and we were off to the races!

Cook time: 5 to 10 minutes
Serves: 2

3 tablespoons Earth Balance, or butter
one tomato, chopped
one small onion, chopped
6 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1/4 cup white wine for mussels, 1/4 cup for sauce
Approx. 15 mussels, cleaned and de-bearded (Discard any mussels that are open before cooking, and any closed mussels after cooking.)

Add Earth Balance, tomato, onion and garlic, cook over medium heat for approx. 5 minutes, add 1/4 cup white wine, stir over medium heat and let cook another few minutes until ingredients are combined and fork tender.

In a separate skillet combine mussels and 1/4 cup white wine, cover over medium heat for 5-6 minutes.
Add sauce over mussels, sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve with fresh garlic bread. Enjoy!
