Add the squash to the tray along with the cumin, smoked paprika, garlic and plenty of seasoning. Mix well and roast for 20 minutes. Tip in the black beans, drizzle over the agave, then toss everything together and roast for another 15 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, make the guacamole. Mash the avocado, peas, lime zest and juice in a bowl, then stir through most of the herbs and some seasoning.
