Ingredients

See your street as it was 11 years ago! ...

For the sofrito

Other ingredients

To garnish

Method

  1. Clean the mussels under the 'grifo' by rubbing one against the other and place in the Varoma basket. [Grifo in Spanish means 'tap' and obviously refers to some part of the mussel's anatomy. I have no idea how to translate this into English, so if anyone is well versed in mussel knowledge, could you give me a word to use please?]
  2. Put 500g water in the bowl 7 minutes / Temp. Varoma /Speed 2.
  3. After this time, place the Varoma basket on the TM lid 12 minutes / Temp. Varoma / Speed 2.
  4. When the time is up, remove the water from the bowl and reserve.
  5. Remove the all but 12 of the mussels from their shells. These 12 are used as a garnish and you should remove the beards.
  6. Wash the leeks, dispose of the green part and chop them.
  7. Put all of the ingredients for the sofrito in the bowl and set 10 seconds / Speed 5.
  8. Scrape down the inside of the bowl with the spatula and set 10 minutes /Temp. Varoma / Speed 1.
  9. When finished, add the mussels, the biscotes, the anise seeds, the stock cubes, the pepper and the water 1 minute / Speed 9 so that the ingredients are well ground.
  10. Pour the soup into individual bowls and garnish with the cherry tomatoes, cut in half, the anis seeds and the reserved mussels arranged around the edge.
