NIGELLA IS BACK on our tellys with her new BBC show Simply Nigella – providing us with much needed recipe ideas for new things to rustle up in the kitchen.

But this week’s episode did not go down well – and it was all thanks to one dish.

Nigella got some lettuce and stuck it in the oven

And then grated some cheese over it

Simply put: the internet was not having it

Putting the lettuce into the oven was a step too far

Perhaps people were looking for a little more culinary sophistication

Poor Nigella

It might not be her finest effort – the egg and warm lettuce combo was considered a debacle by her loyal viewers

The people will never forget the night Nigella burnt the lettuce

The show is called Simply Nigella, after all

It doesn’t look *that* bad, people.
