10 recipes that are easier than Nigella’s avocado on toast

November 18, 2015
 It turns out that even TV cooking queen Nigella Lawson has days when she just can’t be arsed. Or so it would seem when she decided to totally take the pee and ‘cook’ avocado on toast on her show. Cue lots of laughter and mocking on TV, the internet and well, everywhere.
But Nigella, I salute you.  Sometimes the quickest recipes are the best, especially when you don’t have hours to cook slowly and look seductively at the camera.
I’m no stranger to quick and easy recipes, and I mean really quick (not like Jamie Oliver’s pretend 15 minute meals). So as a homage to Nigella’s easy peasy avocado on toast recipe, here are ten that I’ve concocted in the past that might just be even easier than that.  Click on the captions below the pics for the detailed (cough) method:
