In a large sauce pan, melt the coconut oil over medium heat.

Add in the onion and garlic and cook until lightly golden brown, about 2 minutes. Add in the lentils plus 1 whole can of coconut milk and only 1/2 CUP of the additional can, stir and reduce the heat to medium or medium low, so that the coconut milk is just lightly simmering.
