Grilled Asparagus Bundle

In my opinion, a good quality prosciutto is similar to bacon in that it makes anything taste better.  Wrap it, stuff it, fry it or have it plain - it's delicious.
This one is so easy, it doesn't really require an explanation or even a recipe, but I realize there really are some of you that are meal-planning-cooking challenged and need all the guidance you can get.  No worries.

You can literally do this with any vegetable, trust me, but these are too good to miss.

asparagus spears (tough ends snapped off)
prosciutto (cut each slice into 3 long strips)
salt & pepper (optional)
coconut oil

Take one asparagus spear, wrap tightly with one prosciutto slice.  Repeat with all spears, place on baking tray, drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt/pepper (prosciutto is salty enough for me that I omit the salt entirely).  Place spears on preheated grill, 5-6 minutes, turning once.'s that easy - and if grilling isn't on your easy-as-falling-off-a-log list, then roast them on the baking sheet in a 350 oven for 15 minutes (or broil on high for 5-7 minutes).

These make for great appetizers or side dish.


  1. Hey Maria! These look yummy! Something for me to try on my family since I am the only one that will consume asparagus! Thanks!

  2. Ling - I hope your family likes them! :)
