Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit (220 degrees Celsius; gas mark 7).
On a rimmed sheet pan, toss together the carrots and oil. Sprinkle with the cumin, salt, and pepper and toss again. Spread into a single layer.
Roast for 20 minutes, then give the carrots a shake. Roast for five minutes more, then drizzle with the hot honey. Roast for five to 10 minutes more, until nice and caramelized.
Serve the carrots topped with fresh herbs (if using), but they are also delicious on their own.
