- Rinse and soak the lentils for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, prep the following ingredients: 1) Finely chop the onion, garlic and ginger. 2) Combine the spices in a small bowl. 3) Drain and rinse the chickpeas. 4) Chop the fresh coriander; reserve for garnish.
- Heat the coconut oil over medium heat in a medium saucepan. Add the onion, garlic and ginger and cook, stirring often, until beginning to soften, 3 to 5 minutes.

Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.
- Add the stock, coconut milk and soaked lentils and stir to combine. Turn the heat up to medium-high and bring the curry to a bare simmer. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes.
- Remove the saucepan from the heat. Add the baby spinach and stir until wilted. Taste and season with sea salt and freshly-ground black pepper. To serve, top with the fresh coriander and serve with steamed rice or coconut rice.
