“A simple dish of mussels cooked just right in chicken broth. Serve it as a starter to a meal, or as a meal in itself! Serve hot with rice or French bread to dunk in the soup. ” - by lola
Original recipe yields 2 1/2 pounds mussels
- Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook the onion and garlic in the hot oil until softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir the carrot and celery into the mixture and continue cooking until the carrot and celery have also softened, another 7 to 10 minutes.
- Pour the chicken broth into the pot and bring to a boil; cook at a boil for 5 minutes. Add the mussels; cover the pot and allow the mussels to simmer in the broth mixture just until they begin to open, about 5 minutes. Discard any mussels which do not open. Stir the spinach into the broth just before serving hot.

"I used frozen mixed veggies in a bag and prepared them just as the recipe states for the carrots and celery. I used frozen mussels out of a bag from Jewel and prepared them the same as the recipe call..." See mores for. I also cooked linguine noodles on the side, tossed with a little extra virgin olive oil and dried parsley before pouring the broth mussels and veggies over the noodles. It was an excellent and complete meal!"
