  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Mix the soy sauce, honey and lime juice in a small bowl. Scatter the squash evenly over a large baking tray. Drizzle over the soy marinade and toss to coat each piece. Roast for 35-40 mins, turning a few times during cooking, until the squash is soft and coated in the sticky glaze. Keep an eye on it for the last 10 mins of cooking, as the sugar can catch. Set aside half (about 500g) for the Squash & avocado rice bowls; leave to cool, then store in the fridge.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the vegetable oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat and fry the shallots for 4-5 mins until soft. Stir in 3 tbsp Thai curry paste and cook for 1 min until fragrant. Pour in the coconut milk and stock and bring to the boil. Simmer for 5 mins, then taste and add another 1 tbsp curry paste if you prefer more spice.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the noodles to pack instructions and drain well. Divide the noodles between 4 bowls and stir through the remaining squash. Pour over the coconut broth, then scatter with the spring onions and coriander. Serve with lime wedges.
