The beautiful flavour of fresh mussels is showcased in this spicy tomato sauce. Serve with crusty bread to mop up the plate.
Dr Jenna Macchiochi's nutrition notes:
"Mussels are one of the most well-rounded foods to include in your diet, high in zinc, iron and other minerals, vitamins A and B12. A fantastic source of protein, high in nutrients yet low in calories - and low in saturated (bad) fat yet rich in essential omega-3 fats. In this dish they are paired with flavours from the Mediterranean including tomatoes, which when cooked, release their anti-cancer phytonutrient lycopene, and garlic-rich in allicin a great antibacterial phytonutrient to help us stay well in winter."
