    Preheat oven to 180°C. Brush a round 20cm (base measurement) cake pan with oil to lightly grease. Line the base and side with non-stick baking paper. Add the tomato, parmesan, egg, basil and parsley to the rice mixture and stir until well combined. Season with pepper. Spoon the rice mixture into the lined pan. Use the back of a spoon to smooth the surface.

    Bake in oven for 40-45 minutes or until the pie is set and light golden. Set aside in the pan for 10 minutes to stand before turning out onto a chopping board. Cut into wedges. (To freeze, see note.)
