Toss the carrots on a sheet pan with the olive oil and blackening spice. Roast until the just start to become tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, to make the lentils, heat the oil in a medium stockpot over high heat until it ripples. Add the minced onions and garlic and cook, stirring until brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the stock, lentils and blackening spice and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, until the lentils are tender, 25 to 30 minutes.
