    from "Anatomy of a Dish" by Diane Forley and Catherine Young

    The key to this dish is careful roasting. The vegetables should be soft and golden, never mushy or blackened. Experiment with different vegetable mixtures (starchy root vegetables work best); you need 7 to 8 cups of cut-up vegetables in all.

    Serves 6 to 8

    1 large carrot, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
    1 cup 1-inch diced acorn or butternut squash (or a mixture)
    1/4 rutabaga, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
    2 parsnips, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
    1 turnip, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
    About 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1 large onion, peeled, quartered, and sliced
    1/2 fennel bulb, cored and sliced
    1/2 cup wakame (optional)
    Sachet filled with: 1/2 cinnamon stick, 1 1/2 teaspoons coriander seeds, 2 allspice berries, 1 1/2 teaspoons black peppercorns, 1 sprig rosemary, and a handful of parsley stems
    1 cup cooked or canned chickpeas

    Roasting the vegetables
    Preheat the oven to 400°F
    Combine the carrot, squash, rutabaga, parsnips, and turnip in a bowl and toss with 4 tablespoons of the oil. Season with the cinnamon, salt to taste, and a generous sprinkling of pepper. Spread the vegetables in a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast the vegetables, turning them once or twice, until they are tender and beginning to brown, about 1 hour.

    Starting the stew
    Meanwhile, heat 1/4 cup of the oil in a very large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, fennel, and salt and pepper. Give the vegetables a stir, then cover and cook, stirring regularly, until the onion and fennel are very soft, about 45 minutes.

    Finishing the stew
    Place the wakame, if using, in a bowl and add enough cold water to cover by about 1 inch. Set aside until the wakame has absorbed the water, about 15 minutes.
    Meanwhile, add the roasted vegetables to the onion mixture. Add the sachet and 4 cups water and bring to a rapid simmer, then reduce the heat and cook gently over medium-low heat until the vegetables soften almost to the point of falling apart, about 20 minutes.
    Add the chickpeas and heat through, 5 to 10 minutes. Adjust the seasoning if necessary with salt and pepper, and serve in large bowls, garnished with the wakame.
