Recipe Time

Total: 30 Minutes


2 pounds mussels, scrubbed
3/4 cup dry sherry
3/4 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 Thai or other small red chile, minced
2 cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
3 tablespoons chopped parsley
Crusty bread, for serving


In a deep skillet, combine the mussels, sherry and wine. Bring to a simmer, cover and cook over moderate heat until the mussels open, 3 minutes. Remove the mussels from their shells. Strain the broth; reserve 1 cup.

Wipe out the skillet and heat the olive oil in it. Add the garlic and chile and cook over moderate heat for 1 minute. Stir in the beans. Add the broth, season with salt and bring to a boil. Add the mussels and the parsley and heat through. Serve the stew with crusty bread.
