  1. Fill a sink ½ full of cold water. Add the mussels and toss them around. Pull the beards and scrape off any barnacles from each mussel (inspecting them to make sure that they are tightly closed). Discard any open mussels. Do not wash until ready to cook.
  2. Put the tomatoes, basil, onion, garlic, water and Benefiber® into a large non reactive pot. Stir until Benefiber® is dissolved. Add the mussels and cover. Cook them over high heat until you can see them steam forcing its way out from under the lid, shake the pot and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Check to see if the mussels have opened. If not, return lid immediately and cook for another 3 minutes.
  3. Using a slotted spoon, remove the mussels into individual serving bowls, discard any mussels that did not open.
  4. Bring the liquid the mussels were cooked in to a boil.
  5. Pour the liquid over the mussels and serve immediately. Serve with a bowl on the side to discard shells and a spoon for the broth.
