Pick over lentils, removing any stones or foreign matter. Place in a bowl or colander and rinse thoroughly. Place lentils in pot with enough cold water to cover well.

Melt butter in large pan. Add garlic, carrots, celery, cabbage, and onion- cook for 10 minutes. While mixing, add the spices, tomatoes, lentils, lemon juice, vegetable/chicken broth, coconut milk. Bring to boil then reduce heat and simmer until lentils are tender and cooked.
