  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook the onion and garlic in the hot oil until softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir the carrot and celery into the mixture and continue cooking until the carrot and celery have also softened, another 7 to 10 minutes.
  2. Pour the chicken broth into the pot and bring to a boil; cook at a boil for 5 minutes. Add the mussels; cover the pot and allow the mussels to simmer in the broth mixture just until they begin to open, about 5 minutes. Discard any mussels which do not open. Stir the spinach into the broth just before serving hot.

1 star All I tasted was the celery and carrots. The taste of the mussels never came through. Next time I will steam it just with a little wine and garlic.

Absolutely the best mussels I have ever tasted!! They simply disappeared from everyone's plate. Perfectly cooked, fantastic flavor.

So, soooo good! I doubled the amount of carrots and celery, and it was like serving a gourmet soup with mussels. I served it over pasta tossed in EVOO. This is a perfect recipe, and I will make ...

The whole family liked this. I did not have fresh spinach on hand so I used frozen spinach and it turned out pretty good. Would make this again.

Great recipe. Easy to fix and a change from preparing them using wine.
