In my book Glory on Mars, Martian colonists grow their own food – including mealworms, which have as much protein as beef. So I was pleased to discover you can try this yourself at home.
Harvest enough mealworms to replace traditional meat in four or five dishes – right on your desk or countertop… fry them up or mix them into soup, smoothies, or bug-filled burgers.
Fried mealworms are a treat for colonists in science fiction, and they need a treat, because taking a one-way trip to Mars may be a mistake. Read all five books in the series.
