Dice potatoes and begin frying in 3 T oil, olive and coconut), in a large saucepan or enameled cast-iron (I use a Le Creuset). Stir OFTEN to prevent sticking. Add lentils after 5 min and toast lightly. Add 1 c. water and bouillon cube. Simmer, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, dice veggies, and sautee onions in the pat of butter in a skillet, then add garlic, peppers, celery and summer squash to onions and sautee until lightly browned. Add to potato/lentil mixture in larger saucepan. Stir well.
Add 1 can crushed tomatoes, cumin, hot sauce, and coconut milk. Continue simmering, covered, stirring occasionally, and adding remaining water as needed, until lentils are tender, about 20 more minutes. Salt and pepper to taste (not included in nutritionals). Makes 8 ~1 cup servings. Use more potatoes than listed to make this a stand-alone dish, or serve over rice or quinoa for a more complete meal.

Enjoy! But it's hard to stop at one serving.

Romano or Parmesan is a nice kick on top (also not included in nutritionals).
