Nigella Lawson admits she’s a nincompoop after fans call her out on her’vegan recipe’ blunder.


After fans called her out on her “vegan recipe” gaffe, Nigella Lawson admitted, “I’m a nincompoop.”

NIGELLA LAWSON has apologized for a Twitter gaffe she made earlier today, after fans pointed out that she claimed her latest recipe was vegan when it wasn’t.

Nigella Lawson, 62, had to apologize on social media today after posting the alleged “vegan recipe” by mistake.

After fans pointed out that her dish still contained animal products, the chef responded with another tweet to clear up any confusion.

Nigela tweeted to her 2.7 million followers this afternoon, saying, “(hashtag)RecipeOfTheDay is one that suits both (hashtag)cookjan and (hashtag)Veganuary and, frankly, suits me all the time, regardless of hashtaggery; Noodles with Mushrooms and Mangetouts (snow peas to some).”

A photo of a verdant-looking bowl of noodles topped with a plethora of delectable-looking vegetables was attached.

Nigella’s recipe, on the other hand, calls for egg noodles, which aren’t vegan.

All animal products, including eggs, milk, and cheese, as well as meat and fish, are forbidden in a vegan diet.

Simon Cowell’s engagement news has left Amanda Holden speechless.

Veganuary is a recent trend in which people make a New Year’s resolution to eat vegan for the entire month of January.

One Twitter user, Dee Catz, commented under Nigella’s post, “great recipe – perhaps not vegan with egg noodles though?”

“You’re so right! Thank you,” Nigella apologized on Twitter.

“I’m a nincompoop: this is vegetarian, not vegan,” Nigella wrote, retweeting the original tweet with a new caption.

“However, if you want to make it vegan-friendly, just use egg-free noodles,” she suggested.

Her followers applauded her quick correction and thanked her for the recipe.

VioletMistUM replied with a heart emoji, “No worries, you’re still awesome! Thanks for the correction.”

However, her use of the word “nincompoop” seemed to distract the majority of them.


With laughing and clapping emojis, KarriemacK wrote, “But you win Twitter today by using the word nincompoop.”

“When I was a kid and being a bit silly, my mother used to call me a nincompoop – I love this word!!” Sarah Balchin added.

“You’re amazing!” Tracy Ward exclaimed, “I haven’t heard that saying in a long time! But you’re definitely not a nincompoop!!!”

“Nincompoop? That’s a word I haven’t heard or thought of in 40 years!” Embedee exclaimed.

Malina wrote, “This paaasta looks delish!!! I just ate one with spinach.”

“Also, I’m constantly learning from you.”
