Method
  • Pour the oil into a pan that has gotten very hot, over medium heat.
  • Add the onion, carrot and garlic. Sauté for 5 minutes. Stir with a wooden spoon until they have softened.
  • Add the lentils, chicken bouillon cube and enough water to cover the lentils.
  • Add a little bit of salt and bring the mixture to a boil over medium to low heat.
  • Turn the heat down to low. Simmer for 15 minutes or until the lentils are softened but still firm.
  • Strain but do not rinse. Transfer mixture to a bowl.
  • At the same time, boil the rice in a small pot with salted water over medium to high heat. Simmer until the rice softens (according to instructions on box). Remove from heat and strain the rice. Add to the lentil mixture and mix with a spoon.
  •  Add the rest of the ingredients and mix just enough to combine but not so much that the tuna breaks apart too much. Season to taste and add as much olive oil and lime juice as you like.
  • Serve the salad at room temperature.
