Edible Insects - Mealworms

Edible mealworms taste a little like almonds, but they also have a delicate sourness that adds intriguing flavours to savoury dishes. Try dry roasting the freeze-dried mealworms with garlic to make a crunchy topping for salads, soups or noodle dishes. Lightly crush the mealworms in a pestle and mortar and add with peanuts to a satay sauce – their sour notes take the place of tamarind, and their almond-like flavour complements the creamy, nutty flavours of satay. The mealworms can also be enjoyed straight from the packet as a protein-filled snack.

Edible insects are widely considered to be the food of the future. As a percentage of their bodyweight, insects contain more protein than any other food source. As the global population continues to grow and modern-day farming methods take their toll on the environment, farming edible insects is rapidly taking centre stage as the most sustainable method of making sure everyone has access to the nutrients they need. Grub are doing their part to bring the future of sustainable food to the UK – now.
