Chilli Mussels Thermomix Recipe

Sharing is caring!

Michael and dad LOVE mussels, and with Easter around the corner I thought it was a perfect excuse to get back in to the kitchen and cooking for this amazingly supportive community.

Cooking your mussels in your Thermal cooker is not only really quick, but they turn out plumper and less rubbery according to my family (I’ll take their word on this one…) – This has a great kick to it, but you can always reduce the chilli content for a more mild version. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did developing it after a little recovery break.

Love Nik xx
