Cauliflower and spinach dal

I made this the other night for aegidian, sfred and djm4, and it seemed to meet with general approval, so here it is. You could replace the squeezy ginger and coriander with fresh - I just happened to have some free samples.

1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp hing
8 cloves garlic
2 tsp squeezy ginger
1 tsp curry powder
150g red lentils
500 ml water
1 cauliflower
1 small pack baby spinach
1/2 a lime
2 tsp squeezy coriander
Brown basmati rice to serve

Cook rice by your usual method. Heat oil over a medium heat. Add the hing, ginger, garlic and curry powder and cook for 1-2 mins. Add the lentils and water. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 10 mins. Meanwhile, cut cauliflower into florets. When the 10 mins is up, add it to the pot and stir well. Replace the lid and cook for another 10 mins. Meanwhile, juice the lime. Add the spinach and stir till wilted. Stir in the lime juice and coriander. Serve over rice. Serves 4, takes about 45 mins from start to finish.
