Instructions

In olive oil, cook the leek and onions. When soft, add the garlic and a large pinch each of mint and basil and a little marjoram. Cook for a few minutes, then add the wine and cook for a further few minutes. Add the tomatoes and passata, the pure, hot water and season. Cover and cook for about 45 minutes. Meanwhile make the fried bread. Dice the bread and toss with the garlic poder, very finely chopped parsley, a little salt and olive oil. Fry until browned evenly. Set aside.

Remove the soup from the stove and blend. Return to the stove and bring back to a simmer. Add the cleaned mussels (defrosted if using frozen ones) and cook for about 5 minutes. Serve with fried bread scattered on top.
