Method: 

Soak sundried tomatoes in hot water for 15 minutes to soften them, then drain and chop. Bring 3 cups water to a boil in a medium pot. Add rice and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until liquid is absorbed and rice is cooked through, about 50 minutes. Drain rice and place in a large mixing bowl. Add avocado, sundried tomatoes, celery, pine nuts, basil, lemon juice and zest to rice and stir until thoroughly combined.
