8 ounces mussels, whole (about 16 small mussels)
1/2 cup diced tomatoes, with liquid
2 tablespoons chopped onions
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon minced jalapeno
1/4 cup white wine
1/2 cup nonfat chicken broth
1/2 cup canned black beans, drained, not rinsed
salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
a dash of chili seasoning

Saute the onions with just a drop of oil or non-stick spray. Add jalapeno and garlic and cook until fragrant. Add tomatoes, broth and wine until it comes to a soft boil. Season as desired. Stir in beans and drop in frozen mussels. Cook for a few minutes - until mussels are warmed through. Fresh mussels will need slightly different timing.

Serves 2.

Mussels are fabulous. Not only are they dead easy but they’re practically pure protein. Here in land-locked southern Missouri I’ve used frozen mussels. Don’t let that stop you - these tender little mussels have 15 grams of protein and only about 3 grams of fat per 4 ounce (in shell) serving.
