Brown rice, mint and pine nut salad with currants and caramelised onion

I've been making this salad for years ever since I first cut out the recipe from the Sunday Life magazine. It's a Karen Martini recipe and what I like best about it is the way she treats brown rice.

The tuna bake was a staple of the family dining table of the '70s and is popular again now. This quick version from Karen Martini makes for a great midweek dinner. Just add a simple bitter-leaf salad or some blanched greens.
