2 c vegetable or chicken stock
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 onion, finely chopped
1 red chili, chopped (I like to use a jalapeno for warmth + a Fresno for color)
2 T oil
1 t tumeric
mint leaves (or cilantro, which I prefer)
salt & pepper

Heat your dutch oven over med heat. Add oil and then saute onions, garlic and peppers until they're soft and tanslucent. Add the tumeric powder and cook another minute.

Add lentils, tomatoes, coconut milk, stock and bring to boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook until the lentils break down and become creamy.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

It's great over brown rice. Or white. Or alone! =P
This sounds DELICIOUS. I can almost taste it already!
