  1. Halve squash crosswise; scoop out seeds and spongy membrane. Cut a
  thin slice from bottom of each half so they stand upright. Arrange
  squash on a large microwave-proof plate. Combine cream, carrot juice,
  maple syrup, salt and red pepper in a small dish. Spoon into cavities
  of squash halves. Cover tightly with plastic wrap. Microwave on high
  power (100 percent) 6 minutes. Uncover; poke inside of squash several
  times with fork. Replace plastic and return to microwave. Cook on
  high power until tender, 4 to 9 minutes longer. Let stand 2 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, for filling, combine couscous, ginger, red pepper and
  salt in medium bowl. Pour hot carrot juice over; cover and let stand
  8 to 10 minutes. Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add
  leek, bell pepper and pine nuts. Cook, stirring, until vegetables are
  tender and begin to brown at edges, 6 to 7 minutes. Add garbanzo
  beans and corn, if using; heat through. Remove from heat. Stir in
  spinach and mint; season to taste. Spoon into squash halves, mounding
  Note: Fresh carrot juice is available in some supermarkets and
  natural food stores. Canned may be used in its place.
