Why I Love This Recipe

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.

Ingredients You'll Need

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.
