Could you be convinced to chow down on a mealworm burger?

Chef Stefan Gates says mealworms are one of 1800 edible insects, and are nutritious and protein-rich, and surprisingly easy to cook.

He says 99.9% of people regularly eat insects in some form already, and we should embrace farming insects to solve future global hunger problems.

Watch more from Stefan on BBC Two's Food & Drink starting Monday 4 Feb at 20:30 GMT. Or catch his documentary on entomophagy in March.
