Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons minced leeks
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced red onion
  • Oil, for sweating the vegetables
  • 1 pound cleaned mussels
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 3 tablespoons butter, cubed
  • 1 tablespoon chopped thyme
  • Salt and pepper
  • Crusty bread, for serving
Directions
  • Lightly sweat the garlic, leeks and onion with the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat.

  • Add the mussels to the pot and toss them with the vegetables, allowing the mussels to absorb the flavor of the garlic, leeks and onion.

  • Deglaze the pot with the wine. Add the butter, thyme and salt and pepper to taste. Cook until the wine cooks off and the mussels open, about 3 minutes.

  • Serve immediately with crusty bread.
