Mussels are very underrated, with quite a different taste to other food as well as being quite versatile.

I paid a bit more for these mussels as they were cleaned and "ready to go".

In this recipe I have added feta cheese and cooked the mussels in the vegetables and wine combined with the feta cheese.

The result is a rich tasting blend with very tasty gravy, and into this I dipped my warm home made crusty bread.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 2 - 3 servings

Ingredients
1 kilo of mussels
About cup olive oil
6 grape tomatoes
cup white wine
carrot
bunch parsley
stick celery
red pepper

For the home made bread
1 packet rye bread mix (or your choice)
Yeast (as per instructions)
Handful of macadamia nuts
Pepitos
Caraway seeds
Sunflower seeds
Linseed seeds
Bit of powdered mustard

Method
For the Mussels
Blend all the vegetables except the tomatoes in a blender.
Heat the oil on a high flame and saute these blended vegetables for a few minutes.

Any mussels that do not open, throw out


For the home made bread
I used my bread-maker and added macadamia nuts, pepitos, sunflower seeds, caraway seeds, linseed seeds and some pepper.

Set the bread-maker to CRUSTY if possible.

I made the bread according to the instructions and started this about 3 - 4 hours before I started the mussels.

I wanted the bread still warm when the rest of the meal was ready, and I sliced a few thick slices to dip into the delicious gravy from the mussel dish.

Serve at once and soak the gravy into thick slices of the bread, or alternatively, eat the gravy as a soup.
