How To Make Curried Carrot and Mussel Soup
Carrots are simmered in curry-seasoned broth, then blended until smooth to complete this mussel soup that brims with delicious comforting flavors.
In a large pot, melt the butter over moderately low heat. Add the onions and carrots; cook, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes until the onions are translucent. Add the curry powder and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the broth and water. Bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat; simmer for about 10 minutes until the carrots are tender. Discard any mussels that are broken or do not clamp shut when tapped.
Put the wine and the mussels in a large stainless-steel pot. Cover and bring to a boil.
Cook, shaking the pot occasionally for about 3 minutes, just until the mussels open. Remove the open mussels. Continue to boil, uncovering the pot as necessary to remove the mussels as soon as their shells open. Discard any that do not open.
When the mussels are cool enough to handle, remove all but 12 of them from their shells, holding them over the pot to catch all the juices.
Puree half of the carrot mixture in a blender or food processor. Return the puree to the soup pot and stir in the salt.
Carefully pour the mussel-cooking liquid into the soup, leaving any grit in the bottom of the pot. Add the shelled mussels to the soup and cook for about 1 minute over low heat just until warmed through.
Serve the soup topped with the reserved mussels in their shells, and enjoy!
