Grilled Asparagus with Beet Hummus and Curried Chickpeas

This colourful salad uses chickpeas and beets in two ways: First, they come together in our lip-smacking hummus, then, we pile on grilled curried chickpeas and diced cooked beets with lightly grilled asparagus. Win-win.

Beet Hummus

  1. In a food processor, purée the beets and 1 cup (160 g) of the chickpeas with the tahini and lemon juice until smooth. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.


  1. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients. Set aside.

Grilled Asparagus and Curried Chickpeas

  1. Preheat the grill, setting the burners to high.
  2. Layer two large sheets of aluminum foil. In the centre, place the remaining chickpeas (1 cup/160 g), the onion, olive oil and curry powder. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat well. Close and tightly seal the papillote.
  3. Place the papillote on the grill, close the lid and cook for 10 minutes or until the papillote has puffed up.
  4. Meanwhile, lightly oil the asparagus. Grill for about 5 minutes or until cooked but still firm. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Spread the hummus onto plates. Garnish with the chickpeas and beets. Top with the asparagus and cheddar shavings and drizzle with the dressing.


  1. I made this recipe using ONLY my oven. 400 degrees F. Just adjusted the cooking times slightly. This is a fantastic recipe, full of complimentary flavours. It naturally lends itself as a beautiful feast for the eyes, with the various colours popping out. Absolutely delicious, and something quite unique! It’s a keeper.

  2. How can this recipe be adapted to an oven?

  3. Delicious. I have vegetarian children and continue to look for a variety of interesting recipe's. I really liked this, it is a bit different, very tasty, easy to make, and super colourful. Definitely adding this to our repertoire.
