A few tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 medium onion, chopped
1 to 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh ginger

1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons sea salt
4 carrots, chopped
1 1/2 cups french lentils
1 cup long grain brown rice
5 cups water
1 can coconut milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Sauté onion in olive oil until soft, about 5 to 6 minutes. Add ginger, turmeric, spices, and salt. Continue to sauté for another 2 minutes until fragrant.

Place onion-spice mixture into a large casserole dish. Add carrots, lentils, rice, water, and coconut milk. Mix together well. Cover and bake for 2 hours.
