Our answer

Nigella's Chickpeas With Rocket And Sherry (from NIGELLA EXPRESS) can be a vegetarian or vegan main dish or a side dish for roasted meat or seafood. The sweet, soft chickpeas are balanced by the peppery rocket (arugula).

Cream sherry is a sweet sherry and helps to give a rich, slightly syrupy sauce. If you can't use alcohol then we would suggest using a good quality vegetable stock (or chicken stock, if it doesn't need to be vegan or vegetarian). To give a touch of sweetness you can add a small pinch of dark brown sugar. Let the liquid reduce slightly, then taste and see if you need to add any more sugar before serving.
