GARLIC MEALWORM HUMMUS


Two plates on an orange background. On the bigger plate, there are toasts with edible insect hummus which is a great protein source. On the other, smaller plate, there's some more hummus.

Nutty, creamy and high in protein from the mealworms, this hummus is a perfect companion for a salad or evening nibbles. Taking only 10 minutes to whip up, you’ll never be shopping for hummus again!
