  1. Preheat oven to 220 °C (425 °F). Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper.
  2. Place half the pumpkin, cut-side down, on a chopping board. Place a chopstick, lengthways, on each side of the pumpkin. Using a very sharp knife, carefully slice through the pumpkin to the chopsticks at 5mm intervals.
  3. Repeat with the remaining pumpkin half.
  4. Place the pumpkin on the tray, cut-side down, drizzle with the oil and season with salt and black pepper. Cover tightly with aluminium foil and roast for 1 hour.
  5. Uncover and roast for a further 20 minutes or until golden.
  6. Place the honey, vinegar and bay leaves in a small saucepan over high heat. Bring to the boil and cook for 4-5 minutes or until slightly reduced. Spoon half the honey glaze over the pumpkin and place the bay leaves in the incisions. Roast the pumpkin for a further 5-10 minutes or until tender and golden.
  7. Sprinkle with the almonds, salt and pepper and drizzle with the remaining honey glaze to serve.
