Moroccan-style one-pot vegetables

This one-pot vegetable is a warm delight for the cold evenings of the coming winter. Growing up in Bengal, I am a lover of mixed vegetable preparations. I love how the flavors and textures of different seasonal vegetables marry into a delicious combination. I loved the subtle sweetness of pumpkin and apricots, the bite of the bell peppers, the texture of zucchini, the flavor of parsnips, and the hint of spice from the chili flakes. I am sure I will cook something similar again when I have an assortment of different vegetables in the fridge, or just like that for a warm healthy dinner.
