Mussels Provencale

Mussels Provencale created by Gunnerchris

This tasty dish can be served as an appetizer (for 4) or as a main course (for 2). I love to mop up the sauce with crusty bread!! The prep time includes soaking.

    This was a very, very tasty Mussel Provencal recipe. It?s deep and rich in flavour and delivers the taste to the Mussels that you want. However, although very tasty, I personally found it a bit thick and next time round, I will not strain off the juice of the tomatoes as I like a more ?soup? like liquid (but that of course is a personal thing!).<br/><br/>Really liked it, and will recommend it. Thank you J

    Absolutely delectable! CountryLady, thank you for posting this recipe! The only changes I made were to add more garlic and to serve it over basmati rice. This will be my go-to recipe for Mussels Provencale! M&Mers

    I made this last night for an appetizer. It was delicious. I added some slivered carrots, zucchini and red peppers to increase the vegi content, but otherwise made it exactly as the recipe suggested. The flavour was very good and everyone loved it...even those that said they didn't like mussels. This is a definite keeper...thanks.

    I made this the other night for dinner and my husband who swore up and down that he hated mussels ate more than us all. Was very good, I served mine with pasta but sopping up the juice was excellent I used french bread and it was delicious.
