Place the olive oil into a large 6-quart Dutch oven and set over medium heat.

Add the lentils, tomatoes, broth, coriander, cumin and grains of paradise and stir to combine. Increase the heat to high and bring just to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook at a low simmer until the lentils are tender, approximately 35 to 40 minutes. Cut meatballs into whatever size you want and throw in with 20 minutes left. Serve immediately.
