Warm Nicoise Salad a la Gwyneth

19 Jan

On tonight’s menu is a warm tuna nicoise salad adapted from Gwyneth Paltrow’s My Father’s Daughter. It’s perfectly Paleo as she makes is sans pomme de terre! I added beets instead of tomatoes because I had them on hand.

Paleo Warm Tuna Nicoise

Warm Tuna Nicoise a la Gwyneth

Warm Tuna Nicoise Salad – serves 2

Large handful of green beans, trimmed

1 large roasted beet, cut into chunks

1/3 cup olives (I used black)

4 tablespoons olive oil in total

1 red roasted bell pepper, torn in to strips

2 smallish tuna steaks

2 organic large eggs

1 lemon, halved

Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 200 C (400 F)

Blanche green beans for a few minutes until tender. Immediately toss in a large roasting pan with beets, olives, 2 tbsp of olive oil. Spread the roasted peppers around the pan. Rub tuna steaks with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and tuck in to the veggies in the pan. Crack each egg in to a ramekin, season with salt and pepper, 1 tbsp olive oil each and place in the corners of the pan. Put the whole pan in the over for about 12 minutes (depending on over and size of steaks). Eggs should be set and tuna should be just cooked through. I like mine a little pink so pulled it out at about 10 minutes. Squeeze the lemon over everything and serve. So freakin’ good.
