METHOD

  1. In a small saucepan heat the stock, sherry, oregano, and bay leaf to just below simmering. Check for salt.
  2. In a second saucepan heat 2 tbsp of the olive over a medium heat. Add the shallot and cook for a few minutes until the shallot starts to soften. Add the rice and garlic, stirring well to coat.
  3. Stir in the stock, bring to a simmer, cover and cook - without further stirring - over a very low setting until all the liquid has been absorbed. Remove from heat and leave covered for 10 minutes. Transfer the rice to a salad bowl, remove the bay leaf and stir lightly with a fork.
  4. Whisk together the remaining 4 tbsp olive oil, vinegar, and grated tomato. Season with salt and several grinds of black pepper.
  5. When the rice has cooled stir in the lentils, cucumber and dressing. Fold in the tuna flakes.
  6. On each salad plate place a bed of the spinach leaves then the rice salad.
  7. Garnish with torn basil leaves.
