All natural, organic, dairy free and complete protein products made with cricket powder. This is the promise made by Byron Bay (Austrailia) based company Grilo. Grilo means “cricket” in Portuguese.
On their site, they write, “According to the dictionary, a cricket is a brown or black insect that makes short, loud noises by rubbing its wings together. For us it means much more than that.” I love it.
There’s nothing like a deliciously cooked taco. The warm tortillas, the crisp lettuce, the perfectly-melted cheese, and the main ingredient: crickets. Today I want to share with you one of my favorite spins on a classic taco – the cricket taco. Not only is it healthier (crickets are a more sustainable and more nutritious protein addition than beef) but it also tastes ahhhh-mazing! It can be intimidating for newbies to cook with insects, but once you learn to treat them like any other ingredient, you’re golden!
