Method

 
Soup Method
Combine mussels and wine in a large saucepan with a lid. Set over high heat and cook for about 5 minutes, shaking the pan vigorously from time to time. Remove all opened mussels and cook any closed ones a little longer. Discard any that don't open.
Pour the cooking juices through a sieve lined with paper towels and reserve.
Combine oil, chopped parsley stems in a pan and cook over moderate heat for about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook over low heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the reserved mussel juices and heat through. Stir in mussels and parsley leaves, and reheat for 3 minutes.

Toast baguette slices, spread garlic aioli on each slice and place a slice in each bowl on top of the soup. You may also serve the baguette slices on the side.

Aioli Method
Whisk all ingredients together, chill for at least 3 hours before using.
