  1. Step 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Heat the oil in a large casserole over a medium heat. Fry the onion and pepper with a pinch of salt for 5 minutes until softened. Add the tomato purée, garlic and oregano, and cook for a further 2-3 minutes.
  2. Step 2

    Add the stock, rice, beans and olives. Bring to a boil, then turn off the heat, cover with a lid and transfer the dish to the oven for 25 minutes or until the rice is tender. Remove from the oven, scatter over the feta and pine nuts, and return to the oven without the lid for 10-12 minutes or until the feta starts to turn golden at the edges.
  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, combine the tomatoes, cucumber and mint along with half the lemon juice in a large bowl, and season. Once the rice is cooked, sprinkle over the remaining lemon juice and scatter over the dill. Serve with the salad alongside and lemon wedges for squeezing over.
