Cook the Farro
Bring a small pot with farro, 1 cup water, and ¼ tsp. salt to a boil.
Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until tender, 18-22 minutes.
Drain farro in a wire-mesh strainer (there may not be any excess water). Set aside.
While farro cooks, prepare ingredients.
Prepare the Ingredients
Trim bottom ends from broccolini and cut into 2" lengths.
Core tomato and cut into ½" dice.
Peel and mince shallot.
Pat tuna dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.
Make the Sauce
Place another small pot over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil and shallot to hot pan. Stir often until softened and beginning to brown, 3-5 minutes.
Add tomatoes and stir often until tender and juices are released, 5-7 minutes.
Add 2 Tbsp. water and a pinch of salt. Bring to a simmer.
Once simmering, reduce heat to medium low and stir occasionally, 1 minute.
If too dry, add additional water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Remove from burner and cover.
While sauce cooks, make farro risotto.
Cook Broccolini and Start Farro Risotto
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add broccolini and 2 Tbsp. water to hot pan and cover. Stir occasionally until tender, 5-7 minutes.
Uncover and reduce heat to medium-low. Add garlic salt, farro, and cream base. Bring to a simmer.
One simmering, stir occasionally until combined and creamy, 2-3 minutes.
If too thick, add additional water, 1 Tbsp. at a time. Remove from burner. Add half the Parmesan (reserve remaining for garnish). Cover.
Sear Tuna and Finish Dish
Place another medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add tuna to hot pan and cook until tuna reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-5 minutes per side. Tuna is often enjoyed medium-rare (pink in the middle). For medium-rare, cook 1-2 minutes per side. Consuming raw or undercooked tuna may increase your risk for food-borne illness.
Plate dish as pictured on front of card, slicing tuna into ½" slices, if desired, and topping farro risotto with tuna, sauce, and remaining Parmesan. Bon appétit!
