This Asian-inspired tuna stack with farro and crunchy vegetables features our Ginger Vinaigrette and its sweet and umami twist for a stunning flavor combination – all in 25 minutes.

Steps

  1. Place ¾ cup of water and ¾ cup Ginger Vinaigrette into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, add farro, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes until farro is al dente. Remove from heat and drain off any excess liquid.
  2. In a bowl, combine cucumber, carrot and remaining ¼ cup Ginger Vinaigrette. Toss to combine, set aside to marinate while cooking tuna.
  3. Season tuna with salt and pepper. Heat non-stick sauté pan over high heat. Add 1 tsp. oil and sear tuna steaks 1½ - 2 minutes per side for rare. Remove from pan and slice tuna into ¼-inch slices.
  4. Divide cooked farro among four plates. Top evenly with avocado, cucumber and carrot mixture, sliced tuna and garnish with sesame seeds and scallion.

This dish is great as a light meal. The portion size can be reduced or you can serve without the farro for a delicious appetizer.
