Preparation steps


Rinse the mussels thoroughly and throw away the ones that are not good. Zest the lemon and squeeze the juice. Finely dice the onion. Place both with the wine, nutmeg and herbs in a large pot for cooking. Put the mussels into boiling water and let cook while covered for 4-5 minutes until they have opened. Remove the mussels, discard the ones that are still closed, remove the herbs and keep the cooking liquid.


Rinse the bok choy and separate the stems from the leaves. Cut the stalks and leaves into fine strips. Rinse the mushrooms and cut into thin slices. Rinse the chile, cut lengthwise, remove seeds and cut into thin rings. Cut the garlic into small cubes. In a large saucepan, melt the butter slowly, add the mushrooms and chile and cook for 5-10 minutes. Sprinkle with flour and sauté for about 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat and gradually pour in the cooking liquid and the broth. Put the pot back on the stove, add the bok choy leaves and continue cooking for about 2 minutes while stirring. Add the coconut milk to the soup and season with salt and pepper. Then add the mussels and let heat through for about 2 minutes. Season to taste and serve.
