From EatingWell:  February/March 2006, EatingWell Serves Two

When you think “mussels” you may not instantly think “chickpeas,” but the two are joined in tasteful union in this delicious, bistro-style dish. You'll want some crusty bread to sop up the sauce.

Preparation

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
