Quick & Easy Coconut Brown Lentils (Vegan)

I love lentils and am trying to eat more of them. These would probably speed by in a pressure cooker but I've only done them the stovetop way so far. Inspired by both Indian and Indonesian cooking. You can use a 15-oz can of brown lentils to reduce the cooking time if you like, I sized it the same with 2/3 dry cup and included instructions for canned as well. The aseptic or half-gallon boxes of So Delicious coconut milk would probably work well too if you just measure out 14 oz. I use 365 Light Coconut but "light coconut milk" isn't recognized in the ingredient database. "Brown lentils" also aren't recognized? 1/3 cup each of brown and green lentils would also be cool!
