Blue Cheese Mussels

It's been awhile since I posted a favourite Bay of Fundy mussel recipe. This one is a bit unusual but excellent - if you like blue cheese that is!

Blue Cheese Mussels

2 tbsp. olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 stick celery, sliced
½ stick of leek, sliced
1kg mussels, cleaned
100ml white wine
30gr butter
60gr blue cheese, broken into small pieces
Juice of 1 lemon
1 handful of fresh spinach leaves
1 tbsp. chopped parsley

  • Place oil, onion, celery and leek in a pot and cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently.

  • Add mussels, white wine, blue cheese, spinach, lemon juice and cook until mussels have opened.

  • Add butter and parsley, stir and serve.

  • Serves 3-4.

Oh gosh, real food! I came here via a pal's blog - how long will I have to wait until I can eat proper food again! I ban myself from visiting your blog again before that time comes.
Thanks for making my mouth water!
