In a large pot, heat the coconut oil over low heat. Add the garlic, onion, and carrots and saute for 4 to 5 minutes until the vegetables begin to soften. Add the herbes de Provence, salt, pepper, and cumin, mix and saute for another minute, stirring until the veggies are coated in the spice.
Add the red lentils, butternut squash, tomatoes with juice, and vegetable stock and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for 20 minutes more until the red lentils are cooked all the way through.
Remove from heat and stir in the coconut milk.
Serve with a squeeze of fresh lime juice and cilantro to garnish. Enjoy.
