Mussels with Tomatoes & White Wine

From EatingWell:  The Simple Art of EatingWell

You’ll feel like you’re dining in a French bistro when you sit down to a bowl of these mussels, flavored with fennel, garlic, tomatoes and white wine. Save some of the fennel fronds to sprinkle on top to intensify the fennel flavor or add a touch of fresh basil if you prefer. Serve with whole-grain baguette to soak up the sauce.

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add fennel, onion and garlic and cook, stirring often, until the vegetables are just starting to brown, 30 seconds to 4 minutes.
  2. Add tomatoes, wine, stock (or clam juice or broth), salt and pepper; bring to a boil over high heat. Stir in mussels. Cover and cook just until the mussels have opened, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat (discard any unopened mussels). Stir in fennel fronds (or basil), if using. Serve with the sauce from the pan.
