Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

In a medium-sized saucepan combine the cinnamon, cumin, nutmeg, orange juice, stock, honey, and salt and bring to a simmer, or heat until the honey is well distributed within the liquid. Place all of the remaining ingredients except for the zest in a large roasting pan and add the liquid mixture, tossing to coat evenly. Cover tightly with a snugly fitting lid or aluminum foil. (This will allow the vegetables to steam and par cook.)

Roast for 25 minutes covered. Remove the cover, and gently toss the vegetables to recoat in liquid. Roast until the vegetables are nicely glazed and lightly browned, about 20 more minutes. Garnish with the orange zest. Serve warm.
