Steamed mussels have always been a favorite of mine but I wasn’t sure how to cook them when I started the Dukan Diet since I couldn’t use the beer or white wine I normally steamed them in. However you can get very similar flavors by infusing chicken broth with tomatoes, parsley, lemon juice, and onion and quickly steam mussels in just about 5 minutes.
