Cooking time: 30 minutes

“Grillus Kitchen” that delivers recipes using Grilus cricket ingredients
This time, we will introduce a homemade “hamburger” with the scent of crickets!

Hamburgers are loved by both children and adults.
The image of eating it at a fast food restaurant or specialty store is strong, but you can easily make it at home.

This time, I used soy meat for the patty, and grilus extract extracted from Futahoshi crickets for seasoning.

The garnished grilled salted potato chips are an arrangement recipe that sprinkles grilus powder on commercially available potato chips.

Why don't you make a homemade hamburger at home?

    1 tablespoon
  • Gryllus extract
    2 tablespoons
  • Round bread (buns)

How to make

  • Place soy meat, grilus powder, grilus extract, and onion in a bowl.

So crickets!

Grilus extract is a condensed flavor of domestic crickets grown with 100% food waste.
It has an excellent balance with saltiness, and you can easily add the deliciousness of crickets to your everyday dishes.

It is an eco-friendly seasoning that does not depend on marine resources or livestock products, but it is a product that can easily add animal-derived umami to soups, as well as stir-fried and simmered dishes.

In addition to the tomatoes used this time, you can enjoy it deliciously with sliced ​​avocado and fried eggs.
Make your own original hamburger with your favorite buns and ingredients.

Chilled soy meat is soft and crumbles easily, so flip it gently when baking.

Why Cricket?

The protein crisis that will occur in the future and the food loss problem that is currently occurring mainly in developed countries. In order to solve both of these problems, Grilas grows edible crickets using food waste as food.
