Begin by heating coconut oil in a stock pot over med/high heat. When melted add cumin to pot for about 1 minute, then add garlic to sauté for about 2 minutes. When garlic is golden add about 3 cans of salt free tomatoes, drained to the pot. Next add all the other dry spices and cook tomatoes for about 5 minutes. Next add the dry lentils and water to the pot and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and cover pot with lid then simmer for around 40 minutes until the lentils are tender.
