The Mealworm Feast: Prepare your savory Mealworm Zucchini Pancakes!

One of our food revolutionist, Katharina. H sent us the recipe of the Mealworm Zucchini Pancakes. We are so thrilled to try it. Let's follow her recipe and prepare your own Zucchini Pancakes with mealworms!

Recipe for 2 People Ingredients: 

  • 1-2 zucchinis
  • 1 small chopped onion
  • 50g frozen mealworms
  • 3 tablespoons flour/breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • some pepper
  • (100g of grated cheese - if you like)
  • Vegetable Oil

Instruction (Preparation of the Zucchini Pancakes):  

  1.  Grate the zucchini and add salt. Wait a few minutes and pour out the water.
  2.  Add chopped onion and mix.
  3.  Add egg, breadcrumbs, crushed garlic, and pepper (and grated cheese) and mix thoroughly.
  4.  Put frozen mealworms into the hot pan without oil and wait until they do not move anymore (they are dead, it is the expanding water that makes them wriggle).
  5. Then take them out and carefully add them to the already well-mixed zucchini dough.
  6.  Heat a large pan with vegetable oil and put in the frozen mealworms. Take tablespoons full of the zucchini dough, put them in the pan, and flatten them a little.
  7. Turn them over carefully when the bottom starts getting brown. When both sides are crispy put them on a paper towel to drip off some oil.
