Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

Earlier this month, I went to such a fun little ladies holiday soirée and my sweet friend said I needed to bring some healthy snacks! (Duh, my speciality!) I decided on my gluten free dairy free gingerbread men and of course this deliciousness – Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus!

These are so easy to make and whip up for a party or even a side dish for a dinner….or even a snack. Let’s be honest these things are freaking fantastic. This green detox veggie is one of the most nutritionally well-balanced vegetables being high in folic acid.  They are also a good source of potassium, + fiber, thiamin, vitamins A, B6, and C. A 5-ounce serving provides 60% of the RDA for folic acid and is low in calories. You can enjoy this veggie raw with some hummus or tzatziki sauce or with minimal preparation on the grill, oven, or stovetop,

Ideally, you want to make prosciutto wrapped asparagus right before your event or meal. They are the BEST when they are hot + crispy. I’m not picky though. 😉 Tag us @nuvitruellness on Instagram and Facebook when you make these for your next social gathering. In this day, everyone appreciates a wholesome appetizer in the midst of an over abundance of junk food.
