Dinner isn’t complete without a big side of vegetables! For your next dinner, try these Paleo Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus.
Making a new dish can be like going on a little adventure. I prefer trying new recipes on weekends, when I actually have more free time to photograph it and maybe share it with a friend or family member. First you should pick the flavor you’re in the mood for. For instance I’d say this meal gives an Italian feel. A few weeks ago I was craving Mexican, and I made Salsa! Then comes the grocery. If you really want an adventure, go to a few groceries and find the freshest ingredients. Food adventures are some of the best adventures. Enjoy the process and go all in with it! I like to play classical or coffee house music when I’m cooking. If you make your meal an experience, you will feel more satisfied and it will improve your relationship with food.
As some of you know, my father loves to talk about food with his friends, and recently one of his friends suggested this prosciutto wrapped asparagus. His advice was boil 2 minutes, ice bath, wrap em’, and oven. So that’s what we did and it came out perfect. I like my asparagus with a bit of a crunch, but sometimes they come out soggy when I make them. This method worked perfectly.
This dish will surely become one of your favorite sides because not only is it delicious, but it’s a lot more impressive looking than regular asparagus. Another popular asparagus dish is my Roasted Asparagus Salad, which is a staple in my kitchen.
