Mussels are one of the those dishes that should stay pretty simple in my opinion. Their flavor is so strong that I don't want to mess it up. I add olive oil to a large pan and put the stove on medium heat. I add one yellow onion, red bell pepper, and garlic. I cook this down for 5 minutes and then add the washed mussels. I pour some cheap but tasty Greek white wine over the mussels, add cherry tomatoes and cover. I cook everything for 5 minutes only, overcooking will make the mussels rubbery. If some mussels don't open, throw them away, it means they aren't good. Add to a bowl and toss with parsley and feta cheese. Enjoy!

This looks delicious! I used to overcook my mussels and they were gross that way. I feared that 5 minutes wasn't enough, but as it turns out, mussels don't take long to cook and they taste better this way.

Is it easy to eat gluten free in Greece?

My husband has a gluten allergy and it’s been pretty difficult traveling and eating gluten free. There have been many cases where people tell us that something is gluten free and it’s actually not, and he ends up having an allergic reaction. Is anyone gluten free and has traveled around Greece? How difficult was it and can you share a bit about your experience?
