TUNA, SUGAR SNAP, BEANS AND HERB SALAD

Ingredients
  •     1 cup (140g) risoni
  •     2 tbs olive oil
  •     100g green beans
  •     100g butter beans (yellow beans)
  •     100g sugar snaps
  •     200g mixed cherry tomatoes, halved
  •     350g piece sashimi grade tuna
  •     2 soft-boiled eggs, to serve

Herb pesto
  •     2 cup firmly packed basil, plus extra to serve
  •     2 cup firmly packed mint, plus extra to serve
  •     2 cup firmly packed flat-leaf parsley, plus extra to serve
  •     ½ cup (125ml) extra virgin olive oil
  •     1 garlic clove, crushed
  •     Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
  •     Juice of 1 lemon


Method
  1.  Cook the risoni in a large saucepan of boiling salted water according to packet instructions. Drain in a sieve and cool under cold running water. Toss in a bowl with 1 tbs oil and set aside. Bring another saucepan of salted water to the boil and blanch green and yellow beans for 2 minutes, then add sugar snaps and cook for a further minute or until al dente. Drain and plunge into iced water to cool completely, then drain. Cut beans and sugar snaps into bite-size pieces. Add the beans and tomatoes to risoni.
  2.  For pesto, whizz all the ingredients in a blender until smooth. Season
  3.  Heat a frying pan to high heat. Brush remaining oil all over tuna and season. Sear tuna for 30 secods each side – you want the tuna to remain rare inside. Cool briefly, then thinly slice.
  4. Mix three-quarters of the pesto into risoni mixture and season. Place on a large platter, top with tuna, eggs and extra herbs and serve with remaining pesto alongside
