Great recipe. I did not have tender stem broccoli so used small florets of larger broccoli. I probably overcooked it by putting the bok choi in too late, it takes a while to become tender. The pumpkin was lovely, though I was afraid it was going to be too spicy. I found that supermarkets seem to not be calling five spice, five spice anymore, so it was mixed spices, which was fine. It might also be good with mange a tout and even with sesame seeds sprinkled on at the end. Might try that later.

I'm looking forward to trying this but can I just point out that the recipe has a 'vegan' tag even though it contains honey which is not usually considered to be vegan. I'm going to try it replacing the honey with agave syrup - I'm sure it will still taste lovely.
