1 Soak the saffron in the white wine for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, soak the mussels in cold water for 30 minutes. Cut or pull off the beards. Discard any mussels with cracked shells or that do not close tightly when touched.
2 In a large saucepan, cook the onion in the oil over medium heat until golden, about 10 minutes. Add the saffron, wine, and tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Stir in the basil and parsley.
3 Add the mussels and cover the pan. Cook, shaking the pan occasionally, about 5 minutes or until the mussels begin to open.
4 Transfer the opened mussels to individual serving bowls. Cook any mussels that remain closed a minute or two longer discard any that do not open. Simmer the liquid 1 minute more and pour it over the mussels. Serve hot.
