Elisabeth Herndler came to Capon Bridge Middle School in 2002 to share her Austrian homeland at our International Festival. ‘
She recently made this post:
A slightly different falafel’ Project (or ‘Testing my friends’ tolerance’ Project – it’s all in the worm)
Main ingredients for the falafel…
The special ingredient – mealworms…
Half of the worms ground into flour…
Tahini should not be missing in a good falafel
Mix in some parsley and shallots, some spices, too…
and last but not least – it is all about the presentation!
(Steve takes over here.)
Dankeschön, Elisabeth. I’m anxious to try this.
If anybody else wants to make this falafel dish, there are many sources for mealworms. Rainbow Mealworm
is one of the listed producers I list on my bug page
Maybe you see the health benefits, and the benefits for our planet of using insects as food… but you just don’t want to SEE them. You will find products like cricket powder. You can mix the cricket powder with whatever flour you normally use. NextMilleniumFarms
) and Aspire Food Group
(Exo Protein bars
) sell cricket powder.
If you’d like to try some other insect protein packed foods, everybody is welcome to join us Thurs. May 14, 2020, 4:30-7 pm, International Fiesta, Hope Christian Church Augusta
, WV. The emphasis is world cultures, not bugs. But they let me bring my insect-as-food treats, savory and sweet. Visit & experience cultures from all over the world– right here in Hampshire County. Open to anyone who would like to present a country. Stephanie Pryor started this great event many years ago. If you would consider participating, please contact the Hampshire County Public
Library [302-822-3185], or Nancy Meade

Until then, I wish you many wonderful taste experiences in the expanding world of Entomophagy
