Spring Bay Mussels in Tomato Sauce

Ingredients

Method

1. Heat a large heavy based pot with a tight fitting lid over a low heat.

2. Add the olive oil then add the red onion, garlic and some freshly ground black pepper. Cook for 3 minutes or until the red onion is clear and soft.

3. Increase the heat to medium, add the wine and tomato and cook for 6 - 10 minutes or until the liquid has reduced by 1/2 in volume. Taste the sauce and add the sugar to soften the sourness of the tomato if needed.

4. Open the packet of mussels and pour into a colander, give them a light rinse.

5. Pour the mussels into the boiling tomato mixture, give them a stir and then quickly put on the lid. Cook for 3 minutes or until the mussels open. Sprinkle over the parsley and serve with the cooking liquid and some crunchy bread - we recommend the Organic Spelt, Buckwheat & Polenta Loaf from Zeally Bay Sourdough.
