Brooklyn Beckham's fans criticise his 'basic' vegan lasagne
‘What’s next, chicken dinosaurs?’ Brooklyn Beckham’s fans criticise his ‘basic’ vegan lasagne which ‘lacks finesse’ as he comes under fire for his latest cooking video flop
Brooklyn Beckham has been accused of making a recipe that school children would learn in their food technology lessons as he served up his latest cooking flop.
The budding chef, 23, has been trying his utmost to launch a cooking career, but fans have claimed his latest offering – a vegan lasagne – was ‘basic’ and ‘lacked finesse’ as they critiqued his twist on the Italian classic.
Brooklyn shared the cooking tutorial to his Instagram page, where he was seen chopping up onions, garlic and aubergine, before adding them to a pot with a bag of plant-based meat alternative and preprepared tomato sauce.

It wasn’t clear if Brooklyn had previously whipped up the sauce himself, but it wasn’t shown during the video as he added it into the mix.
Once the sauce was ready, he added it to a dish and layered it with cheese and store bought lasagne sheets.
His followers queried why he wasn’t using the traditional béchamel sauce in between the layers, which could easily have been made vegan-friendly.

Brooklyn topped the dish with chopped basil, which one viewer pointed one you should never do because it turns black and should only be pulled with your hands.
The son of Victoria and David Beckham removed the pasta dish from the oven once ready to reveal the finished product to his fans.
After tasting the meal Brooklyn gave it the thumbs up and his wife Nicola Peltz was clearly impressed too as she reshared the video, writing: ‘sexy chef.’

However his followers were less impressed, suggesting that the meal could easily have been made by someone of school age.
One person quipped: ‘Next week little Brooklyn will be making dinosaur chicken nuggets.’
Another agreed, and wrote: ‘It’s getting embarrassing for him now. Kids would learn to do this at school.’

A third wrote: ‘No white sauce – not a lasagne and no need to blanch the pasta 3/10.’
One passionate fan said: ‘This is NOT how you make a lasagne.’
Another said: ‘Very basic and literally zero finesse.’

Despite the overwhelmingly negative feedback, some were impressed by Brooklyn’s lasagne and even asked him for the recipe for the meal.
This isn’t the first time Brooklyn has been the subject of fan ridicule for sharing his simple recipes online, he most recently took to social media to share a sped-up video assembling a poke bowl.
The video came days after he shared a video styling his wife’s outfit, as fans queried if he was flip-flopping between careers.
In December, the aspiring chef – who has tried his hand at a multitude of professions before swiftly moving on – took to Instagram and filmed himself boiling a pot of pasta and whipping up a salad.
In the tutorial video which had no sound, the former photographer, fried tuna steak with black and white sesame seeds and a lemon-and-egg glaze.

He then claimed he’s ‘very experimental’ when making drinks but proceeded to make a gin and tonic with the two most obvious ingredients.
In the video, Brooklyn could be heard saying: ‘I’m very experimental, I love trying to make new drinks, trying new recipes, you know I’m a nutter in the kitchen.
He added: ‘I used to love going to the pub with my friends but obviously now I’m married and have my best friend with me all the time our favourite nights are staying in when I cook and make drinks.’
Fans were left baffled at the bizarre video and claimed Brooklyn or his management were ‘trolling’ them.
One wrote: ‘I still can’t work out if Brooklyn is trolling us or the people who manage Brooklyn are trolling him’
Another fan said: ‘It’s a gin and tonic mate. Any eight-year-old with luvvies for parents can make one.’
A third penned: ‘Come on be fair he did squeeze some mint to get the smell out.’

Brooklyn has largely been cooking for Instagram videos over the past few years as he shares basic tips with his followers on meals such as burgers and sandwiches.
But he admitted to Bustle in a recent interview: ‘I’m not a professional chef – at all.’
‘I’ve never said that. I never would say that. Obviously, my dad [retired footballer David Beckham] knew what he was doing at a very young age. I’ve only been doing cooking for not even three years.’
Brooklyn stressed: ‘It’s okay to be 25, 26, or even 30 and not know what you’re doing yet. You know what I mean?’
He recently starred in his own online Cookin’ With Brooklyn series, which saw him enlist a 62-person crew at the eye-watering cost of $100,000 to film him making a sandwich.
In one of the eight-minute episodes, Brooklyn, who has no professional training as a chef, shows his Instagram and Facebook followers how to make a bagel sandwich with a hash brown, coleslaw and fried sea bream.
According to the New York Post, the video had a team of professionals on hand including a ‘culinary producer’ who approves the recipes, five camera operators and nine other producers.
Think you can cook it like Beckham? Brooklyn reveals the VERY simple ‘recipe’ for his ‘special’ English breakfast sandwich
1 teaspoon olive oil
4 rashers of English bacon
4 country sausages
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
4 slices soft white bread
Ketchup to serve
1. Add the olive oil to a cast-iron skillet set over medium heat, place the bacon in the pan and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until crispy on both sides. Remove bacon and place onto a paper towel-lined plate to remove excess grease.
2. Then add sausages into the same pan, searing evenly on all sides. After about 2 to 3 minutes, slice them in half while keeping the two sides attached and cook the inside until crispy. Remove from pan and place onto plate with the bacon.
3. Add 2 eggs into the same skillet and season with salt and pepper. These should cook quickly with the existing oil in the pan.
4. Assemble all ingredients on top of the bread to make two sandwiches, drizzle with ketchup, cut in half and serve.
