Cut the onion in half, then peel and finely chop. Cut the broccoli into tiny florets. Peel and finely grate the garlic and ginger.

Heat a non-stick pan over a medium heat and add the oil. Saute the onion for 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger, turmeric and cumin and sauté for another 1-2 minutes. Stir in the lentils and then pour in the water and season with pepper.

Toast the pitta bread and cut in half. Divide the spinach & lentil dahl into bowls and arrange on plates with a piece of the pitta bread. Season with pepper to serve.
