Recipe's preparation

  1. - A small bunch of Parsley is required for this recipe, I use curly parsley.

    Add prepared Mussels to Varoma and season, set Varoma aside. Chop Onion, Garlic and "Fridge" Vegetables in bowl, 3 Seconds / Speed 5.
  2. Add Butter to bowl. 3 minutes / Varoma / Speed 1
  3. Add all additional ingredients & half the chopped parsley to bowl. Place Varoma on top and set Thermomix 25 Minutes / Varoma / Speed 1.
  4. Once cooked, place Mussels in large bowl, pour broth over them, sprinkle remaining parsley over the top and serve with Crusty Bread & airfried Frites (we love the tefal airfryer!).

Place the Mussels in cold water for atleast 20 minutes. Clean the mussels thoroughly by scrubbing them & pulling away the 'beards', the seaweed-like stringy threads. Remove the beard by pulling toward the hinge using a towel between your forefinger and thumb for leverage. Discard any broken mussels along with the 'beards', and any mussels that don't close tightly when you tap them. Allow about 500 g per person for a main meal. Mussels are best enjoyed in season in the Uk (October through March).

Enjoy !!!
