Mussels With Thai Coconut Creme Broth
If you love good-old traditional mussels in a spicy tomato sauce, you are going to love the change up to Thai with this recipe. You can increase the weight of the mussels to the capacity of the Varoma dish, but you should also then increase the cooking time as needed. The best check for cooked mussels is if the shells open by themselves. You should not have to at any point force a shell open. If there are unopened mussels in your finished dinner, discard them.
Serve this with rice noodles to soak up all that great sauce, or just drink it frankly. AH-mazing.
