You can start by making the yogurt sauce. In a bowl add the yogurt, half a chopped garlic clove, juice from half a lemon, pinch of salt, and black pepper. Mix well and taste to see if it needs more salt or lemon. Set aside.
Chop the onion, bell pepper, and pumpkin into medium size cubes.
Add some olive oil to a pan and once it's hot add the vegetables. Cook the veggies on medium heat for 8-10 minutes until the pumpkin is tender. Add the drained lentils to the pan. Gently mix and cook on low heat for 4-5 minutes. Add a pinch of salt to the ingredients.
Cut the bread into triangles and put them to toast.
Serve the sauté on a plate accompanied by the toasted bread. Pour some of the yogurt sauce on top before enjoying.
