Masterchef viewers rip into BBC contestant for 'not doing any cooking' – and it seriously backfires | The Sun

MASTERCHEF viewers have ripped into one contestant for "not doing any cooking" – and it seriously backfired for the hopeful.

The BBC One cooking competition continued last night as the remaining contestants battled it out.

During the episode, judges Greg Wallace and John Torode introduced guest judge and food critic Leyla Kazim.

As the hopefuls got cooking, the trio were left bemused by Mirel's dish he was preparing.

The 34-year-old Londoner revealed he was cooking a clear vegetable soup with beetroot, orange, red chicory and some bitter melon.

"I don't think they've ever tasted a dish like this before," said Mirel.

Commenting on his dish, John, 57, remarked: "What Mirel is making is completely out of his own imagination and it sounds quite fascinating."

The meal also featured tofu, which Greg quizzed him on.

He asked: "How do you cook the tofu," before Mirel replied: "I'm not cooking."

When asked by guest judge Leyla whether it was a vegan dish, he replied: "Yes, it's vegan, 100 per cent vegan."

The three of them appeared nervous to try his creation, and asked had anyone else tasted it before.

Mirel said he had made the dish for his friends who had "really liked it, surprisingly".

Later in the episode he could be seen making a stuffed cabbage roll, cooking it in a broth which had beetroot.

Inside the roll was a mixture of rice and mushrooms along with spices and herbs.

However, viewers at home took to social media to rip into Mirel for "not doing any cooking".

One said: "Mirel is not a fan of the cooking part."

A second said: "He's not done much cooking again."

"Not a lot of cooking going on, Mr Wallace? It was an inspired creation," said a third.

While a fourth commented: "Mirel got booted off because he didn't do any cooking."
