Ingredients
 

  • 4 globe artichokes
  • salt
  • 4 oz long-grain rice
  • 12 oz can tuna fish in brine
  • 4 tablespoons tomato puree
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Cut off the artichoke stalks. Plunge the heads into boiling salted water. Simmer for about 20 minutes or until the bottom leaves pull away easily.
  • Drain and leave until cold. Remove the hairy chokes from the centre of the artichokes.
  • Meanwhile, cook the rice in boiling salted water for about 12 minutes. Drain and leave for about 20 minutes, until cold.
  • Thoroughly drain the brine from the tuna fish and flake it using a fork. Add to the rice together with the tomato puree, herbs and salt and pepper to taste. Fill each globe artichoke with the tuna and rice mixture.
  • Serve with a tomato salad.
  • Avoid buying tuna fish canned in oil which will add unwanted calories. More rice could be cooked at the same time to be used in another dish the next day; when cold, cover with cling film to prevent it hardening,
