14.02.08: Valentine Chickpeas

She decided to put a serendipitous discovery to the test and give Nigella's chickpeas with rocket and sherry a little Valentine's colour by way of pomegranate seeds. Faithful salad of mixed leaves, beetroot and cucumber was standing by.

SHE SAYS: I'm always impressed by how v. tasty this recipe is for something so simple - no chopping! The pomegranate seeds proved themselves fully up to the chickpea challenge when liberally sprinkled on top: juicy and tart, they made a delicious counterpoint to the soft, dry chickpeas and slightly bitter rocket leaves.

HE SAYS: Chickpeas were nice and tender and delicious. Thought the pomegranate seeds added a nice crunch and a little bit of Crystal made it perfect.
