Today's meal: Veggie pasta with cinnamon tenebrio molitor.
Farm: Last spring I bought 100 mealworms and now there are many thousands. This week, the first members of generation 3 started pupating, which I decided in the very beginning would be my signal to start harvesting them.
Prep: I pulled out about 20 larvae or so, fed them cinnamon for a full day, froze for another day. I boiled them together with pasta and veggies. No sauces or anything that might distract from the flavour
First reaction: I actually can't even taste the cinnamon. I'm guessing I didn't gut load them long enough, or I should have mixed it with their usual meal.
Regardless, they taste good. It's subtle, but nutty and creamy. Umami I guess? Like peanut butter or something.
In the future I'll experiment with different pairings.
Overall: It was tasty, cheap, and easy to make.
