Ingredients

  • 1 large brown onion, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes
  • 3 sprigs oregano
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 1 tsp dried chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2kg mussels, scrubbed and debearded
  • 1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup light cream
  • Crusty bread, to serve

Method

Heat oil in a very large, deep pan and cook onion and garlic over low heat for 2-3 minutes. Add white wine and bring to the boil. Simmer for 3 minutes.

Add tomatoes, oregano, thyme, chilli flakes, sugar and tomato paste. Stir well and bring to the boil.

Add mussels. Cover and cook over high heat for 2-3 minutes, shaking pan occasionally. Using a slotted spoon, remove mussels as soon as they open and place in a large serving dish. Discard any that do not open.

Remove pan from heat, add parsley and cream and stir well. Pour sauce over mussels and serve immediately with crusty bread.
