The reinvention: Seared tuna steak & sweetcorn quinoa

I am pinchin, I am punchin, I am first of the monthin..... wooh lol

Hey guys, I am really in a foodie phase right now.
Can you tell?

It is cold outside and I just wanted something hearty and healthy to keep me warm and vitally something that doesn't take ages to throw together.

Isn't she lovely? Yes I have dubbed my dish a she coz she fine!

I have been obsessing over Tuna steak and Quinoa for the last few months and this combo has been really good to me.

This is super simple but looks and tastes very impressive.
The colours are vibrant and refreshing against the slate gray December skies and you can almost pretend your sitting somewhere hot.

Tuna seasoned with a dry rub:
Dried chives
Garlic and herb salt
chili flakes
30 mins I didn't marinate the tuna steak as long as I usually would.

Approx 190grams serves 2
Boil until fluffy season with dried herbs and seasoning to taste
Dice 1 large red bell pepper
Finely dice 2 rashers of bacon
Finely chop one large leek and fry in a small amount bacon fat
Boil sweetcorn separately and mix all together
Add poppy seeds

I wasn't a big fan of Quinoa when I was younger but now I am loving  that nutty flavour so much.
Quinoa is so nutritious and tasty a definite must try ummmm hmmm.

And now if you will excuse me, I shall now face plant and chow down lol!
