I love mussels and I love them in tomatoe sauces. This was fabulous with the chickpeas and the wonderful spices that hold up to the strong flavor of the mussels. It's a great meal with rice or some naan or flatbread to sop up the juices.
The spices make the difference. I love the flavours of cumin and ginger in combination with cinnamon. The sugar adds the sweet note, which make this combination perfect. Tomatoes and chickpeas are a great addition for the mussels. I used more cayenne, because I like it very spicy. A mussel recipe, which brings together the wonderful taste of spices with the delicate flavours of mussels. And if you don't like mussels until now, you will like them from now on. Try it.
