  1. 1

    Cook the Farro

    Bring a medium 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.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim bottom ends from broccolini and cut into 2" lengths. Core tomatoes 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.

  3. 3

    Make the Sauce

    Place a small pot over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil and shallot to hot pot. Stir often until softened and beginning to brown, 3-5 minutes.
    Add tomatoes and white balasmic vinegar. 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.

  4. 4

    Cook Broccolini and Start Farro Risotto

    Return pot used to cook farro to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add broccolini and 2 Tbsp. water to hot pan and cover. Stir occasionally until tender, 6-8 minutes. Uncover and reduce heat to medium-low. Add 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 and set aside.

  5. 5

    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!
