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 with oil.
  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 (about 15 minutes); remove from heat and leave covered for a further 5 minutes; transfer the rice to a salad bowl, remove the bay leaf and stir lightly with a fork.
  4. Whisk together the remaining 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, combining well; gently 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.
