It’s very unfortunate that police in the UK are running out of preferred vegan meals after the powerful Just Stop Oil Protest.
I have been soliciting for people to send their spare tofu, soybeans, and Beyond Meat to England to help this crisis, but a better and more cost-effective, climate-friendly idea may be to encourage those imprisoned to open up their palate to a very climate-safe and nutrient-dense eating style: Insectatarianism.
Mealworms, crickets, and grasshoppers are as high in protein as tofu. Worried about getting minerals? Don’t be. Minerals and vitamins that are mostly found in insects include magnesium, iron, and vitamin B12.
It will please climate warriors to know that insect consumption is key to cutting farmland use by a third, thus substantially reducing emissions of greenhouse gases.
Unsure of how to prepare insects? Don’t worry, Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum have got you covered with the new Cooking With Klaus cookbook.
20-Minute Cricket and Pepper Ravioli Skillet
Ant and Ginger Potstickers
Faux Cheese Grasshopper Pizzadilla
Instant Pot Spaghetti with Beetle Meatballs
Spicy Garlic Wasps
Keep in mind that 2 billion people over the world are already eating insects every day.
- cricket flour contains a nutty flavor
- red ants are creamy and have a lemon-zest flavor
- beetles are popcorn alternative
- wasps taste like pine-nuts
- scorpions can be substituted for soft-shell crab
- giant water bugs are like eating a salted-banana
Cooking With Klaus is due out in December from World Economic Forum Press.
