Another one of our favourites. The original recipe had too much honey, here I have altered it for our tastes.
Combine in a bowl:
1 level Tbl honey (less is ok but in a large baking dish full of veg this is not too much)
1 Tbl lemon juice
1 tsp curry paste (don't over power the vegs with this, its not a curry)
1 tsp cumin seeds (or ground)
1/2 tsp ground coriander seeds
2 tsp fennel seeds
1/2 cup chopped fennel fronds - only the soft ones
1/4 - 1/3 cup olive oil

Put into a large bowl:
1 - 11/2 cups chopped pumpkin
1 large parsnip, quartered lengthways
1 fennel bulb, cut into chunks (lengthways but not too big)
1 onion, cut into chunks
1 - 2 potatoes, cut into chunks
(any other suitable vegs)

Mix all together well and place into a baking dish so it all fits fairly flat. Bake 45 - 60 mins, tossing once. Enjoy. Beautiful cold for lunch.
