  • One-pot Italian-style mussels are made with olives, bay leaves and dry white wine for delicious flavours waiting to be mopped up by crusty bread (or go for skinny fries). A portion works out at just 218 calories


    • 3tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    • 4 anchovy fillets in oil
    • 3tbsp ‘dry’ pitted olives, sliced
    • 6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
    • 2 bay leaves
    • 6 large plum tomatoes, roughly chopped
    • 150ml dry white wine
    • 1kg cleaned mussels
    • crusty bread or skinny fries, to serve


    • Heat the oil gently in a very large pan or stock pot. Add the anchovies and cook over a low heat for a few mins, until they begin to break up. Add the olives, garlic, bay leaves and tomatoes, and cook for 5 mins. Pour in wine and simmer for 5 mins.

    • Add the mussels, stir well, cover with a lid and cook over a medium-high heat for 5 mins, shaking the pan occasionally. Once all the mussels have opened, serve straight away in warmed bowls with the crusty bread or some fries – or both!
