Ingredients

Sun-dried Tomato Tapenade:
Farrotto:

Directions

In a cast iron skillet, on high heat or over a charcoal grill, cook the tuna steaks on each side for just 2 to 3 minutes, keeping the fish on the rare side of medium rare. Spread 2 tablespoons of artichoke tapenade on the fish after turning them over the first time.

Serve with lemon wedges and Faro Salad

Sun-dried Tomato Tapenade:

In a food processor, puree all the ingredients together. Set aside. (This also makes a great crostini topping.)

Farrotto:

In a heavy-bottomed saucepan on medium heat, sweat the onions and garlic in the oil and butter until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the faro and saute for 1 minute more, so that each grain is coated with oil. Add the water and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer and cover for 35 to 40 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed and faro is cooked. Turn off heat and let the faro rest covered for another 10 minutes. Stir in cheese, tomatoes and parsley. Season, to taste.
