Preparation Method :

  • Place the rice in a colander and rinse in cold running water. Turn into a bowl, cover with cold water, and allow to soak for 30 minutes.
  • Drain, and place in a pan with the water or stock, 1 teaspoon salt and bay leaf. Bring to the boil, then cover the pan and simmer over a gentle heat for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the rice is tender and liquid absorbed.
  • Fifteen minutes before the rice is cooked, heat the oil in a large frying pan. Gently fry the garlic, onion, celery and green pepper until they are soft but not browned.
  • Stir in the basil and rice and season well with salt and pepper. Toss lightly with a fork until heated through.
  • Spoon the mixture into a shallow flameproof casserole dish and arrange the tomato slices on top.
