1. With a sharp kitchen knife, carefully cut the squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds from the centre using a spoon, then place both halves face down in a microwave-safe dish. Add about a half inch of water to the dish, then cover with cling film and poke a few holes in the top for steam to escape. Microwave on high for 10-12 minutes until the outer shell and flesh has softened. Remove from the microwave, uncover, flip over the squash halves and allow to cool slightly.
2. While the squash is cooking and cooling, you can prep all of your toppings for the bowls. Chop up veggies, round up some leftovers and grab some guacamole and salsa.
3. When the squash is cool enough to handle, use a fork to fluff the spaghetti strands until you’ve scraped away most of the flesh from the sides of the outer shell.
4. Fill the squash half with all your toppings, layering the beans, veggies, salsa and guacamole. Then you’re ready to dig in!
