Preheat oven to 400°F. Wrap beets in foil; place on baking sheet. Roast until fork-tender, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Let cool enough to handle, about 15 minutes. Peel beets; cut into wedges.
Meanwhile, cook quinoa according to package directions.
Vinaigrette: In large bowl, whisk together vinegar, oil, shallot, garlic, honey, salt and pepper.
Add quinoa and chickpeas to Vinaigrette, stirring to combine. In separate bowl, drizzle kale with 2 tbsp of the oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Massage oil into leaves until slightly softened, about 3 minutes.
In skillet, heat remaining 2 tbsp oil over medium heat; cook halloumi until browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to cutting board; cut into 1/2-inch cubes.
Divide beets, quinoa mixture, kale mixture, halloumi, pomegranate seeds and yogurt among bowls.
Test Kitchen Tip: The beets and quinoa can be cooked a day in advance; cover and refrigerate. Bring to room temperature before using.
Makes 4 to 6 servings.
