Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots and garlic and cook for about 10 minutes until the onion starts to brown lightly. Add the spices and cook for a couple minutes, stirring frequently, until fragrant. Add the can of tomatoes with their juice and scrape any browned bits at the bottom of the pot. Add lentils and broth, bring to a boil then reduce the heat and cook for 30 minutes.
Once cooked, mix with a handheld immersion blender until smooth. Add the coconut milk and stir. It should be at the right temperature to eat right away, but you can also refrigerate or freeze and reheat as needed. There should be no need for additional salt if you use regular salted vegetable broth or bouillon but you can adjust the salt to your taste.
