Place the acorn squash in a baking dish, cut sides up. Spray it lightly with the olive oil cooking spray. Bake the squash for 20 minutes.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the chickpeas, red onion, scallion whites, spinach, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice vinegar, garlic and ginger paste.
Remove the acorn squash from the oven. Stuff the hollowed-out centers of each half with the chickpea filling. Use a brush to gently brush some of the hoisin glaze over the exposed flesh of the squash. Return the squash to the oven and bake for 25 minutes, until it is tender. (Larger squash may take longer to cook - the squash is done when it's fork tender.)
