Asparagus Wrapped With Prosciutto : Low Carb and so delicious !


Low-carb prosciutto wrapped asparagus can be cooked in the oven or even on a barbeque! Serve it as an appetiser, side dish, a light lunch or finger food. 

This recipe uses five ingredients - asparagus spears, thin prosciutto, almond meal/flour, Parmesan Cheese and double/heavy cream. Doesn't that sound a delicious combination!

Please see more, including a step by step guide at Libby's Ditch The Carbs Site here

"Did you know that asparagus originated 2,000 years ago in the eastern Mediterranean region and was initially touted as an aphrodisiac. It has many health benefits including these five:

It Improves Heart Health
It Has Anti-Carcinogenic Properties
It Is A Powerhouse Of Essential Nutrients
It Lowers Risk Of Type 2 Diabetes
It Helps Fight Digestive Troubles

Plus these additional benefits:
In addition to the above benefits, asparagus is also known to be effective in improving skin health, preventing signs of premature aging, reducing the risk of rheumatoid arthritis and relieving PMS related symptoms. So, the next time you head to the supermarket, you know which vegetable to stock your basket with!"

I left a comment but I am not sure it went through so I will try again. The recipe looks delicious but I think I will set it aside until fresh local asparagus is available. The imported stuff available at this time of year has the texture of bark and the taste of finely ground cardboard!

Sally said...

Oh, I do love asparagus! And, had no idea how good it is for us! Thank you!
