Mopane-worm-meal

Ingredients

200g  Mopane worms

1 cup boiling water

1/2 chopped onion

1 chopped tomato

Salt and pepper for taste

Cooking oil

Method

Start of by soaking your worms in the boiling water for 1 and a half – 2 hours. Once they are done soaking, drain the excess water. In a sauce pan, add the cooking oil and fry the worms for 15 mins on medium to low heat. Add the onion and fry till the onions are cooked through and soft. Add the tomato with the salt and pepper. Fry everything together and let it cook for another 20 mins. Some prefer adding peanut butter at this stage and cooking it down until it is nice and creamy.

Serve with Sadza.
