Bug like that isn’t bugs?
I’d say sautéed/fried onions are a good go-to. And rice. Sautéed onions IN rice. I don’t think we have many recipes that are bug-like. You could also eat gummy worms and fruit gushers. Unfortunately, that’s all I can think of right now. Sorry, darling! If I think of/find anything, I’ll post it. So keep an eye out.
Things like roast seeds, peas, granola, etc. are great because they’re small, crunchy, and savory. Also grapes, especially thick-skinned ones like muscadines, because they’re small and have the the outer shell and then a squishy inside.
For squishier things like worms, we have gelatin recipes in the insect tag that could probably just as easily be made with vegan gelatin.
I would link you to all these recipes but my laptop keyboard is going haywire for some reason today (it took me like half an hour just to type this out). You can find what i’m talking about in the birdkin and insect tags. I’ll try to edit this post later if my laptop stops acting up.
(For the above-mentioned reason, this is the last ask I can answer for today until I can fix it, sorry!)
It’s cool, I’m sure Wolf and I can handle it until you get things fixed.
So you are sitting down for a meal, or maybe just thinking about what to make for dinner. What sounds good to eat? Maybe you want a stir-fried dish of bees? If you have a sweet tooth, you might want to try some chocolate covered crispy treats. Maybe you don’t want to know what gives this treat its crunchiness, but they have been called delicious.
Even though these may not be your typical foods they are nutritional. They have protein and fats that we need to live. In fact, there are some countries where a good dish of insects is just the perfect meal. From tasty ants to grasshoppers and delicious grub worms, many cultures eat insects as part of their diet.

Earthworm subtle, earthy flavour lends itself well to all sorts of delightful dishes (a few sample recipes provided below). Many people around the world eat earthworms as a staple; Aborigines in Australia, the Maoris of New Zealand, and some Asians. Many other worms can be eaten as well, some are noted in the recipes below. The meat can be used like ground beef , or as meat filler: made into burgers, sausages, chilli/spagetti, scrabble/scramble, meat pies/caseroles/quiche, etc.
