Mealworm Fried 'Rice'

Was cruising the inter-webs yesterday and came across this article cooking with insects and a recipe for fried rice. Unusual enough to peak my interest. Went grocery shopping this morning to pick up ingredients. One stop at the market, next the pet store. You're thinking to yourself "why the pet store?" 

To get these! Check out that protein content!!

 Preparation is like any fried rice recipe just worms are added instead of chicken or pork.

Reminded me of dried shrimp but not as chewy or salty, these crunchy. Will get live worms next time, want to give those little buggers a try!

2tbsp lard
300g 'riced' cauliflower
25g dried mealworms
2cloves garlic chopped
3 scallions chopped
2tbsp coconut aminos or tamari
1-2tbsp fish sauce
White or black pepper to taste
1-2 Red Jalapeno chopped (optional)
