Preheat oven to 200°C. Place vegetables in a roasting pan with garlic. Toss in oil.
Roast all vegetables except spinach for about 20 minutes or until nearly tender. Toss in orange zest, juice and brown sugar. Continue cooking until juice is evaporated and vegetables are completely cooked.
While vegetables are roasting, place walnuts in a pan over a low heat and toast for 10 minutes or until browned.
To make dressing, warm honey slightly in microwave. Add yoghurt, orange juice and zest. Mix well. Add more honey if you prefer a sweeter dressing.
