 Categories: Fish, Main dish, Low-fat
      Yield: 6 Servings
 
      1 c  Plain nonfat yogurt
    1/3 c  Packed fresh basil leaves
    1/4 c  Blanced garlic puree*
           Salt and pepper
     12 sm Red new potatoes
    1/3 oz Dried porcini mushrooms
    1/2 ts Fennel seeds
    1/2 ts Black peppercorns
      6    5-oz. tuna steaks, 1" thick
           Vegetable oil spray
      2 lb Fresh spinach, stems removed
      1 pt Cherry tomatoes, halved
 
  *could use roasted garlic puree instead ~Spoon yogurt into a strainer
  lined with a paper coffee filter or cheesecloth. Set the strainer
  over a small bowl and refrigerate until most of the liquid has
  drained off the yogurt, about 3 hours. ~In a mini-processor or
  blender, combine 1/3 c basil leaves, blanched garlic puree and
  drained yogurt - season with salt and pepper. Puree the sauce until
  smooth. Transfer to a bowl. (This sauce can be made up to 8 hours
  ahead and refrigerated - bring to room temp before using) ~In a
  steamer basket set over a pan of simmering water, cook the potatoes
  until tender, about 17 mintues.  Let cool sloghtly; cut into quarters.
  ~Meanwhile, in a spice grinder or mortar, gring the dired porcini,
  fennel seeds and peppercorns to a fine powder.  Pat the tuna steaks
  dry and season both sides with salt.  Sprinkle the porcini powder all
  over the tuna, pressing it into the surface. ~Lightly coat a large
  nonstick skillet with vegetable spray and heat.  Add the tuna steaks
  and cook over high heat until browned on the bottom, 2 to 3 minutes.
  Lightly coat the top of the tuna with vegetable spray, then turn and
  cook until browned outside but still rare in the center, about 3
  minutes longer. Transfer the tuna to a cutting board and cut into 1/2
  inch slices. Wipe out skillet and set over high heat.  Add the
  spinach,season with salt and pepper and cook just until wilted.  Add
  the tomatoes and stir until heated through. Mound spinach on plates.
  Arrange tuna and potatoes around the spinach and drizzle about 2
  tablespoons of the basil sauce. Garnish with the chopped basil and
  serve at once. Reprinted from Food and Wine - June 1996.
