Nigella Lawson’s return to TV was a mixed affair to say the least. While many viewers were complimentary about her comeback, Twitter soon became outraged by one ‘recipe’ in particular.

The cooking personality spent a few minutes of Simply Nigella showing watchers how to perfectly put avocado on toast. A good few seconds were spent showing her spooning the “buttery green flesh” onto her choice of bread, dinkelbrot.

Criticism was mainly levelled at how easy the dish was - it contained lime, chilli flakes, dill, ginger, and radishes along with the bread and avocado. Watch part of the segment below.

One viewer wrote: “New Nigella Lawson cookery show feels beyond parody. So far she’s mashed up an avocado and looked at some holiday photos.”

Another added: “Did Nigella really just mash up an avocado put it on toast and call it a recipe? Foodbloggers can rest easy!”

Nigella will be back next week on BBC2, but what will she show us how to cook? Perhaps how to fry an egg to perfection? Find out next time...
