Preheat the oven to 450°F. Liberally coat two baking sheets with cooking spray and set aside.
In a large bowl, toss the carrots, fennel bulb, onion, garlic, olive oil, salt, black pepper, turmeric, cumin, and honey until the vegetables are evenly coated. Spread in a single layer on the prepared baking sheets, ensuring that the vegetables do not crowd one another. Roast for 30 minutes, turning twice throughout until the vegetables are tender and browned.
Working in two batches, add half of the roasted vegetables and vegetable stock to a blender. Purée until smooth, then pour the purée into a heavy-bottomed 4-quart pot, or Dutch oven. Repeat until all of the vegetables are puréed.
Stir in the coconut cream and bring to a gentle simmer and let cook for about 10 minutes until fully heated through. Serve warm, topped with a drizzle of sesame oil and a sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds.
