  3. Stir in the wine and garlic and add the bay leaf, thyme and peppercorns.
  4. Bring to the boil then add the mussels. Cover the pan and steam for 4-7 minutes, shaking the pan several times, until the shells open. Discard any which remain closed.
  5. Stir in the parsley and serve immediately with crusty bread.
