Pugliese mussel soup with garlic bruschetta (zuppa di cozze piccante)


This simple soup calls for canned cherry tomatoes, but you could substitute fresh tomatoes or canned whole tomatoes and break them up with a wooden spoon.

You'll need

70 ml olive oil 1 onion, finely chopped 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 6 anchovy fillets 1 tsp dried chilli flakes, or to taste 800 gm canned cherry tomatoes 120 ml dry white wine 2 kg mussels, scrubbed, beards removed To serve: coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley and small basil leaves   Garlic bruschetta 8 thick slices sourdough bread 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 1 garlic clove, halved

Method

  • 01
  • Heat 40ml oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat, add onion and garlic and stir occasionally until very tender (6-8 minutes), add anchovies and chilli and stir until anchovies dissolve (1 minute). Add tomatoes, season to taste and simmer until thick (6-8 minutes).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in a separate large saucepan, add wine and mussels, cover and shake pan occasionally until mussels open (3-4 minutes). Strain mussel liquid into tomato mixture, and when cool enough to handle, remove half the mussels from their shells (discard shells) and set aside.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, preheat grill to high heat. Drizzle bread slices with oil and toast, turning once, until golden. Rub with cut-side of garlic, season to taste and keep warm.
  • 04
  • Add mussels to tomato mixture, simmer until warmed through, stir through parsley, scatter with basil and serve hot with garlic bruschetta to the side.
