To prepare vegetables: Preheat oven to 200C, 400F, gas mark 6. Peel & chop the carrots and parsnips into even-sized wedges. Peel and cut the onion into wedges. Place on a baking tray, sprinkle with olive oil, put in preheated oven and roast for 20 minutes. Core, deseed and cut the pepper into chunks. Add to the vegetables and continue to cook for 15-20 minutes.
To make the Cous Cous : Bring the stock to a boil in a small saucepan, and turn off the heat. Add the salt, pepper, cumin, and saffron threads and allow to steep for at least 15 minutes.
