400 grams mussels boiled and de-shelled
3 cloves garlic chopped
1/4 cabbage
Few saffron threads
1/2 cup fish or chicken stock
2 tablespoons tomato paste
Splash of liquid smoke
1/4 cup beans
1 tablespoon olive oil

DIRECTIONS

Prepare mussels and place aside.
Blitz cabbage in processor until it resembles ‘rice’ crumbs.
In paella dish (or frypan) heat oil and add garlic. Add cabbage. Toss till cabbage wilted and sweats thru.
Add stock, saffron and tomato paste. Mix to combine.
Add beans and heat till cooked thru.

NOTE: you can use cauliflower rice instead of cabbage. You can use prawns, squid or chicken rather than mussels and use capsicum, tomatoes and more fresh herbs for different colors and flavours!
