1 Tbs Tahini
1 Tbs Tamari
2 Tbs Rice Vinegar
1 Tbs Honey
1 Tbs Sesame Seeds

2 Daikon Radishes [sliced into matchsticks]
2 Carrots [sliced into matchsticks]
1 Kohlrabi [sliced into matchsticks]
Swiss Chard or Kale [to garnish]

8 oz. Soba Noodles

Cook soba noodles in boiling water till just tender then rinse under cool water. Mix tahini, tamari, sesame oil, rice vinegar, honey + sesame seeds in a small bowl then toss veggies, noodles + sauce together in a larger bowl.

Seared Sesame Seed Albacore

1  Albacore Tuna Loin [approx. .75 – 1 lb.]
2 Tbs. Black Sesame Seeds [or a mixture of black + white]
Fine Grain Sea Salt + Finely Ground Black Pepper [the finer, the better]
1 kohlrabi [medium, peeled and sliced into 1/8″ slices]

Wasabi Sauce:
1 Tbs. Water
1 Tbs. Wasabi Powder
1 Tbs. Sesame Oil [dark, toasted]
1 Tbs. Soy Sauce

Preheat a large saute pan over medium high heat. Spread sesame seeds on a plate in a single layer.
Rinse tuna + pat dry. Season all sides lightly with salt + pepper. Press into sesame seeds to evenly and fully coat all sides of fish. Place tuna in hot pan, allow each side to quickly sear (1 – 2 minutes per side).
Remove from pan, slice into 1/2″ pieces and serve next to sliced kohlrabi, drizzled with a bit of wasabi sauce.

Serves 2.
