Recipe Ingredients for Coconut Curried Red Lentils

1 tbsp Olive Oil
0.5 small Onions
3 clove Garlic
28 oz Crushed Tomatoes
0.5 cup (8 fl oz) Water
14 oz Coconut Milk
4 tsp Natural Cane Turbinado Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon, Ground
2 tbsp Curry Powder
1 tsp Nutmeg, Ground
1 cup Red Lentils
1 tsp Sea Salt

Recipe Directions for Coconut Curried Red Lentils

Melt the coconut oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, and cook for 5 minutes more. Pour in the water and coconut milk, and add the molasses, coconut powder, cinnamon, curry powder, and ground coriander. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then stir in the lentils, and cook until just tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir frequently as the lentils cook to keep them from sticking. Be careful not to overcook them, as they will quickly loose shape and become a paste.
